Described as “one of the most innovative jewelry designers of the 21st century,” Alexis Bittar burst onto the scene in 1988. Fueled by his passion for antiques, including Art Deco Bakelite and turn-of-the century Lalique glass, Bittar’s boldest, most whimsical, and easily recognizable pieces are created in Lucite. After making fashion headlines on Sex and the City, Bittar won the Accessories Council’s “Rising Star” Award and became a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. In a short amount of time, Bittar has gone from selling his jewelry on the streets of SoHo to answering a growing demand from luxury retail stores and world renowned museums. In this fascinating and inspirational evening, Alexis Bittar describes his roots, artistic vision, and design process.
