Alexis Bittar launched his eponymous jewelry collections in the early ’90s; but the Brooklyn native’s artistic flair was evident long before then. As a child, Bittar accompanied his parents to flea markets, where they collected and sold rare antiques and collectables. At the tender age of 10, Bittar showed his entrepreneurial spirit by selling flowers from a hand-painted cart across the street from his house. In 1996 Bittar was asked to design an exclusive collection of Lucite and stainless steel furniture for the Cooper Hewitt Museum, as well as a highly acclaimed line of limited edition home decor pieces for Barneys New York and Takashimaya. Two years later he designed Burberry’s first ready-to-wear jewelry collection, interpreting their signature plaid onto Lucite. Bittar collaborated with legendary fashion designer, Michael Kors, on a exclusive runway collection for Kor’s Spring 2008 line in 2007. In 2008 Alexis opened his second retail store in NYC, located on Bleecker street in the West Village. Alexis wins the CFDA’s “Accessory Designer of the Year” Award in 2010.
