Alivia announces its collection with GiGi’s NYC on WDSD!

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day,
Alivia announced its Spring 2023 collection 
in collaboration with GiGi’s NYC participant, Stephanie Portoviejo!

The partnership between Alivia and GiGi’s NYC began with a workshop 
at our Playhouse hosted by Alivia Co-Founder and CCO, Jovana Mullins.
Participants chose various artistic tools and drew from personal inspiration
to create a design of their choice … and the rest is history!

To shop Stephanie’s collection, please visit the Alivia website here.
Alivia will donate 10% of its sales from this collection to GiGi’s NYC. 

“Alivia provides a voice to the previously unheard,

showcasing the diverse talents of people with disabilities

by using fashion as a powerful connection platform … 

Every Alivia piece begins by transforming the artwork of

creators with disabilities into bold prints and intricate embroidery —
stitching a human story into every piece.”
