It started with a pair of pants - Alice Olivia Malaysia
Imagine this: You were walking down the street, looking for a pair of sexy trousers along the streets in New York and you were disappointed by the choices displayed. So what do you do? That’s how Stacey Bendet started her journey into the fashion world when she transforms a dull trousers into a sexy pair, which led her to launch a 20 piece collection at the Russian Tea Room in 2002. The highlight of the pants were the design: it is retro, tight on top, belted at the leg with the slim cut at the hip.
As a result, it gives the illusion of elongated legs and lean silhouette to the wearer, making it popular among the fashionistas. Later on, more orders of the collection start to pour in by big brand labels such as Barneys and Theory by Andrew Rosen, who later helped to invest in her business.
The brand is now global and sold in over 50 countries, and has since expanded into sweaters, dresses and skirts. The brand also has 13 US freestanding boutiques, all of which designed by Stacey herself and is located in cities such as New York, California, Chicago and Connecticut. The brand also recently debuted 7 international free-standing stores located in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore with more stores coming to cities such as in Tokyo, Japan, Dubai, and Kuwait.
