Alicia Marilyn uses the finest materials ranging from semiprecious stones to vintage, often one of a kind, findings. Her designs infuse antique with contemporary styles reflecting a sensual, elegant, and classic look. Each piece is carefully and meticulously hand-crafted in her Manhattan studio in NYC to ensure the highest quality. Alicia, who is also a professional actress, has worked with many amazing stylists throughout the years and has learned to appreciate and respect great design. Alicia began to create and wear her own custom-made pieces. When she was constantly asked what she was wearing or if people could, quite literally, buy right off her neck, her business was officially born.
She has created individual pieces for the hit TV show “Without a Trace,” and for numerous actresses, including Laura Dern and Naomi Watts, Rachael Ray, Katie Couric, Alison Bailes, Samantha Brown, and several VH1 and MTV personalities.
Alicia is also a huge advocate for animal rights and has been for many years. She volunteers regularly in shelters in and around New York City and New Jersey and does her own rescue work as well. Alicia Marilyn Designs regularly donates a portion of their sales to several different animal welfare organizations, including Bideawee and The Humane Society as well as smaller hands-on rescue groups that she helped to form.
