An Evening with Stacey Bendet

As part of the CFDA’s “An Evening with…” series, Stacey Bendet hosted the CFDA {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers at her company headquarters, where they had the chance to listen to Stacey divulge stories about the growth of her company. Stacey gave the designers important advice regarding building a strong brand identity smart merchandise assortment. She shared stories about her early days at Alice + Olivia, beginning with the popular Alice + Olivia pant, which became a label staple. With a juggernaut and thriving business we had to ask Stacey how she most effectively manages her time. The secret? Hire innumerable Virgos!
