Susan Alexandra F/W20 Presentation At Public Arts
Susan Alexandra presented its Fall/Winter 2020 Collection, in an uplifting and extravagant musical at PUBLIC Arts in New York City. Actors, including veterans from her Spring/Summer 2020 collection such as Hunter Abrams, Benito Skinner, Lauren Servideo, and Richard Perez, as well as Aisha Kerensa, Jessica Joffe, and Larry Owens sang 4 original scores written by director MUR. Capturing the ups and downs, the beauty and dark sides of being a creative in New York City, Alexandra’s musical story evoked a sense of connectedness in every showgoer in the theatre.
After a dramatic sequence that illustrated Alexandra (played by Aisha Kerensa) being musically and physically knocked down by a disagreeable landlord (embodied by Jessica Joffe), and a string depression (Tessa Albertson, Jade Litaker, Demi Washington, Nyah Raposo, and Shane Fuller), the story comes to a triumphant and inspiring end that brought the house down. The musical featured new and original bag styles, hair bands, and campy costumes that all played a part in exhibiting the expanse of Alexandra’s glittering empire.

ABOUT SUSAN ALEXANDRA
Susan Alexandra is focused on bringing joy, dazzle, and wow to your existence. Best known for her signature beaded bags and playful jewels, every item is made by hand with care in NYC.
PUBLIC’s fundamental premise is LUXURY FOR ALL. It is built on four key pillars: service, style, unique experience and value. However, it’s not luxury as we traditionally know it, but luxury reflecting a new definition. Luxury is no longer about things or how much something costs. It is not a business classification, a price point or based on scarcity. Luxury is now about experiences and how something makes you feel. Luxury is being democratized and is now for everyone. The 3 bars, Diego, The Roof and Lobby Bar each have their own unique vibe and personality so depending on the time, you might end up hitting all three on the same night or just one, depending on your mood. Lushly landscaped gardens, multiple communal workspaces, and private event rooms, both indoor and outdoor atop the building with jaw-dropping 360-degree unobstructed views of the city, the spaces provide the ultimate in socializing, entertaining, working and even just people watching.
