*Meet Alicia P. in person from 6:30 – 9pm

Mixed media artist, Alicia P. returns to NYC from the Southwest, for an exclusive showcase of new sculptural creations. Under her label Designs by Alicia P, she has developed a way to blend her couture work with her skill as a visual artist.

The diversity in her upbringing, exposure to the world, & overall interest in exploring themes of ‘life after death,” provides Alicia the inspiration to work with leather creating sculptural jewelry that integrates found materials and semi-precious stones; provided by both the earth and community. These pieces, often described as mini sculptures, are a direct result of constant and continual practice of techniques developed by Alicia P. herself. Her design work is built upon a foundation of visual art and Alicia’s style is recognizable throughout all her mediums. Her work has been featured in a number of fashion and media outlets, from W Magazine in 2015, feature films like Tyler Perry’s ‘Good Deeds’ (actress Phylicia Rashad wearing Alicia P.), to print publications (The New York Times, the Fader, to name a few). Her couture jewelry is carried in boutiques in New York City & nationwide, and she works with a number of private clients and fashion stylists.


*This Trunk Show coincides and is in celebration of Alicia P.‘s larger contemporary work, on view at the Clio Art Fair
: March 2 -5th, 508 W 26th St, New York, NY.
