We first met Andrea Lieberman in 2001 on the set of the Hey Baby music video, she was working as the wardrobe stylist.... I remember thinking "Wow, this lady is bigger then life!" She very calmly handled a huge set of extras and band members.
At this point in my life, I was also a wardrobe stylist for music videos and I just was in awe of her confidence and skills. Not to mention I approved of her wearing sneakers on set, because... That shiz is hard work and wardrobe stylists are tripping if they think they can wear heels on set.
As a stylist Andrea as responsible for one of our generations most iconic red carpet moments.
It sounds so silly to say it, but if you were around then, you couldn't escape hearing about Jennifer Lopez in this dress. It basically put her on the map! A life changing moment for J.Lo and a game changer for Andrea Lieberman. After leaving her mark as a stylist, Andrea went out to make her mark on the fashion world as one of our favorite designers.
In 2009 Andrea launched her ready to wear line A.L.C and the rest is fashion history. From being a Vouge CDFA Fashion Fund Finalist in 2012 to being spotted on countless members of Hollywoods fashion IT girls... Delivering season after season of clothes that we die for. By the way, Andrea managed to have two amazing, sweet and beautiful children while she was killing it in the fashion world.
Andrea is am amazing combination of sophisticated style and street realness. She has a soft voice mixed with a straight up New York accent and a laid back attitude, somehow she captures that in her collections.
We are so happy and proud to celebrate this woman and to call her our friend.
She has always been so generous about lending an ear or some advice when needed.
A loving mother, a creative power house, a badass... Yep, this is the kind of lady we want to celebrate. Women like this can inspire all of us. I know it's not easy to manage all those pots on the stove... But we applaud you for doing such a beautiful job at it.
Follow the A.L.C Instagram for beautiful fashion shots and also great empowering quotes and also to maybe get a glimpse of Paloma and Leo her kids who we are obsessed with.
Can't wait to see what this girl does next, we are sure it will blow our minds.
