When we see the designs of Alice and Olivia, we fashionistas tend to notice things like the vibrant color, the genius fabric, or the fun shape. But the mastermind behind the brand, Stacey Bendet, is a woman of many trades and talents.
Bendet is a wife, mother of two, full time CEO, and entrepreneur, so you may as well call her Superwoman. She makes a difference every day and is certainly someone to look up to.
Her passions lie not only in fashion design, but in helping others. Her love of yoga brought her to Bent on Learning, a nonprofit organization committed to teaching yoga to New York City public school children in order to help them feel happier and healthier in their daily lives. Alice and Olivia sponsored their 3rd annual gala.
She is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the NY-based Baby Buggy, which provides essential clothing, gear, and services to families in need. Between hosting toy drives and annual celebratory parties for the charity, she stays busy giving back.
Stacey also works hard to help the Lung Cancer Research Foundation, making 10% of purchases made at Alice & Olivia one day to benefit them. The shopping event in Southampton occurred during weekend of the 8th Annual Strides for Life event.
Celebrities love Alice and Olivia and these beauties rocked Stacey Bendet’s styles.
