Multi Chic was founded in 2008 by sisters Alyssa Reuven & Darice Gregg.
Alyssa (Gregg) Reuven
Alyssa Reuven, Co-founder of Multi Chic, is a self-taught designer and artist living in New York City. From her studio in Long Island City, Queens, Alyssa focuses on the artistic process of hand making products and artwork for Multi Chic. Alyssa is captivated by beautiful patterns, shapes, colors and textures found in nature, art, architecture, and textiles. These elements evoke feelings and ideas and it is this spark of inspiration which drives her to create original, hand crafted objects. She hopes to inspire and delight others with her creations.
For Alyssa's hand printed textile goods, she uses methods such as block-printing or hand cut stencils. Each design starts with hand-drawn artwork which is either carved onto blocks or cut into stencils. Alyssa's hand painted glassware and trays are created by applying small dots of paint resembling intricate beading or paint that is brushed on in several layers to create texture and depth. Alyssa debuts her one-of-a-kind and limited edition hand printed, painted and crafted creations exclusively at Multi Chic but may also be found in select retail stores around the country.
Darice Gregg, Co-founder of Multi Chic, is based in Los Angeles and oversees the day-to-day operations and the inner-workings of Multi Chic and assists in the creative direction of the company.
Prior to founding Multi Chic, Alyssa & Darice designed and manufactured fashion accessories for eight years under the brand Aliza Darik. Aliza Darik, founded in 1998, took off in 2000 after its floral accessories were featured in the NY Times Sunday Styles section. Simultaneously, HBO's series Sex and the City was featuring over-sized flowers on the trend-setting character Carrie Bradshaw played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Aliza Darik accessories were sold in high end department stores such as Barneys, Henri Bendel, other luxury fashion boutiques around the world, and were often featured in top magazine editorial spreads styled, photographed and edited by some of the biggest names in fashion.
