Strictly Fashion: Steven Alan



Fashions the word... that indie designer and boutique owner, Steven Alan symbolizes. The unfamiliar, under the raps designer is one of my favorites. He takes average and ordinary pieces and turns them into more swanky, contemporary, and desirable apparel. His designs are simple yet ambiguous, if that makes any sense. To speak metaphorically, his line doesn't yell, it just hums a unique tune. Steven owns a trendy and admirable boutique, where he sales his own independent brand and numerous others. 3.1 Phillip Lim, Opening Ceremony, Wings + Horns, and Conroy & Wilcox are a handful of labels sold there. His store originated in New York, but just recently opened several in Southern California. Now he is bicoastal and the owner of seven boutiques.
EXTRA FACT! Steven Alan is a divorced father who has one son, of which he shares custody with his x-wife.
ANOTHER EXTRA FACT! Steven Alan is starting a new line (not diffusion) for Urban Outfitters. It will be called Lark & Wolff and is planned to be merchandised in stores July 4th. The pieces will retail between $58 and $128.

I wanted to send you a quick invitation from all of us at theinsider.com. Every day, The Insider scours the web for the latest in celebrity gossip so our users don't have to.

You may already know The Insider TV show as a leader in the world of breaking celebrity news. We have a number of fabulous bloggers who are already active members on The Insider but we are constantly searching for new top-shelf blogs to invite to the community and feature on the site…Which is why I wanted to get in touch with you. The Insider is a vibrant, interactive forum for site community members and SEO users, alike, to get news from all of their favorite blogs in one place.

When I came across your site, its content, tone and overall appearance fit exactly with the vibe and quality standards we look for in potential movers and shakers on The Insider.

I heart SA... I used to live on the Upper West Side right near the "outlet" (basically just a Steven Alan store where everything's always on sale) and I would buy a pair of their fantastic plaid or pinstripe bloomers every other day!
