It goes without saying that I adore clothing label Alice + Olivia. Anyone who has a chance to experience the fun, frivolity and chicness of this label cannot argue that it embodies the spirit of its designer, the effervescent Stacey Bendet. Which is why I’m excited to tell you about the fact that YOU will get a chance to meet Stacey and the group because they’re coming somewhere near (or directly toward) YOUR TOWN!
Stacey and her team are hopping into a 1970’s vintage Airstream motor home armed with a+o stylists and the hottest looks for Summer and Fall.The trunk show/make America beautiful effort comes complete with a team of photographers, stylists, DJs, and a+o friends who are going from town to town for makeovers, styling sessions, impromptu photo shoots, and local model searches. The team includes a+o in-house stylist Cleo, a documentary-style photographer named Diggy (who studied with Mary Ellen Mark and Annie Leibovitz), and downtown NYC improv actress Mollie.
While they’re hopping from town to town visiting their favorite boutiques, they’ll be stopping in small towns and participating in community projects at every stop. As in, extremely fabulous things like rebuilding the wardrobe of a Nashville girl who lost her belongings in the flood, making a high student’s prom dreams come true, giving a new mom a makeover, outfitting a bride for her upcoming honeymoon, and dressing a teen for her first date! Like I said, FUN!
