Looking for: Social Media management/ Sales Support/ Website Management intern for Spring 2015 semester
Reports to: Alana Blank and Rachel Lavipour
Days: 3 days/ week
Duration: Spring Semester style, school credit available
A deep seeded dream became a vivid reality as designer Alana Blank launched the premier collection from contemporary jewelry brand, PHYLLIS + ROSIE. Inspired by the overflowing jewelry boxes of her Grandmother Phyllis and Aunt Rosie, Alana sought out to build a personal assortment of everyday pieces that could be freely layered to express her unique polished-rock style. Yet after scouring shops across the globe for the designs in her mind, she came to the realization that the only way to build this collection was going to be to create it. Alana soon came together with Rachel Lavipour, a young veteran in the luxury retail industry, to launch a brand that the two would only describe as “go-to staples that are effortlessly stylish, edgy and always chic.” And so with a versatile, easy-to-wear forty piece collection, PHYLLIS + ROSIE jewelry was born.
Inspired by pop culture, street style and the idea of timeless design, Alana develops each PHYLLIS + ROSIE piece with the intention of capturing the woman who tirelessly works to merge classic sophistication with an air of cool. Delicate necklaces, stackable rings, mixed-media bracelets, subtle earrings and edgy hand-pieces make up the collection, which is entirely designed, sourced and handmade in New York City. PHYLLIS + ROSIE jewelry is currently sold in 15 retail locations, with many more locations set for 2014!
