Alexis Bittar is one of the biggest (and boldest) names in the world of costume jewellery. Since his humble beginnings in the streets of SoHo in New York over 20 years ago, the Alexis Bittar brand has grown to be recognized and carried in more than 34 countries around the world. Bittar won the CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year award and the ACE Award for Brand of the Year in 2014.
We caught up with Alexis at Holt Renfrew in Toronto last week, when he was in town to show off his Fine jewellery and Holiday collections. Read on to see what makes Alexis tick and keeps him inspired after all these years in the business!
