Anthony Alexander Fall Designer Jewelry Fashion Show

This is a total link love post to my Dad. Before or around the time I was born my father started his jewelry and belts manufacturing business. Its a great entrepreneurship story: he was a history teacher in Greensboro, NC and wasn’t too crazy about his career choice. One day he decided to get his students involved in other cultures and came up with a hands on teaching device. He got together beads and leather strands so the students could build their own ethnic necklaces (sorry I can’t remember what culture they were from). Well the students ate it up but the real spark came when the other teachers started begging Anthony to sell them the necklaces. He quit the teaching job, started designing more jewelry, and hit the street. 30 some years later Anthony Alexander dominates its niche consumer industry.

So he just put together a mini fashion show video and is seeing great success distributing it so I popped the sucker on Google video and YouTube for him. Check it out. It even features Trish from ‘The Bachelor’! (The one that got kicked out and stormed in on the bachelor and his date while they had dinner).

All those years of soldering metal parts, running a leather press, and glueing parts as a kid paid off. My dad is the primary reason I quit my 6 figure salary to start my own business. The best part is having a go-to guy for basic business advice. Thanks daddy!

    Hey! I was just wondering if you could do me a favor and e-mail me about the fashion shows your dad does for jewelry. I am in college and doing a presentation for my strategic marketing class about different ways to market jewelry and I thought that a fashion show would be a wonderful way to go about it. I just had a few questions for you, if you have the time. Thank you so much!

    Your jewerly is very unique. I noticed on the video you had young models sporting your jewerly. You should see how the full figure girls are working it! I have several pieces and they are show stoppers everywhere I wear them. They are beautifully designed and they are lovely with my hats on Sunday morning.
    Thank you Anthony, keep up the good work!!!!!

    I have bought numerous pieces when on vacation in San Destin, FL from Village Babes. Are there any local Atlanta stores that I can shop at that sell your belts and jewelry?

    I get TONS of compliments everytime I wear anything from your collection.

    Where does one buy your belts from? I’m crazy over belts and can never find beautiful belts. I used to live in the mediterranean and would go to Rome to buy my belts. Here in Dubai, there ARE NO BELTS – waaaagh!!

    thanks – love your stuff

    I have one of your belts and love it, but unfortunately it broke and cannot be fixed. I very much want to replace it but can not find another. Is there any way to get another? It is my favorite belt and I wore it all the time.

    I was at the Dallas Opera and was looking around in their gift shop and saw this necklace. I bought it and came home to look up Anthony Alexander. Seems like a made a good choice.. I also sell Designer Jewelry at Neiman Marcus in Dallas.
