New York, NY— Amber Poitier, high end contemporary jewelry brand, announced today that it will debut its premier collection during New York Fashion Week. The gallery style presentation entitled Breathe.Pray.Love, will take place on Tuesday, February 16th in Manhattan’s trendy NoMAD neighborhood.
Launched just last Fall by New York based designer Alicia Appleton, Amber Poitier draws its inspiration from nature and the city. The line features handcrafted pieces constructed of wood, metal, leather, and acrylic shaped in chic, modern yet edgy designs.
Breathe.Pray.Love, the line’s first collection—inspired by the memoir and film, Eat.Pray,Love—is a metaphor of the designer’s journey in the fashion world. Breathe being a representation of letting go of her twelve-year stint in corporate fashion (exhale) and embarking on a new path (inhale). Pray depicts Appleton’s search for direction, peace and happiness. Ultimately, Love is exemplified in the collection that showcases her renewed passion to create.
“Corporate fashion simultaneously educated and jaded me,” Alicia said recently. “The creation of the Amber Poitier brand and the new collection has rejuvenated my love for designing again. It has allowed me to step into my purpose.”
The invite only event which begins at 5:30 PM, will feature an art gallery style presentation where guests are invited to stroll through the displays of texture and color to experience and shop the collection.
