Alison Chemla is the creative director and designer of Alison Lou, a fine jewelry brand based in New York City inspired by the deceptive simplicity of modern communication and beyond. 

Her introductory collection Emoticore remains a thoughtful and cheeky commentary on the expression of feelings from the banal to the intimate through the language of emoticons. Since Alison’s first collection, which stands as her signature today, the line has evolved to include collections based on themes from Casino to Secret Garden, while always remaining playful in its approach. Alison Lou’s most recent collection, Mama Mia, was dreamed up after a summer trip to Italy. The collection consists of designs inspired by everyone's favorite pastas - farfalle, penne, and spaghetti to name a few. 

Since it’s birth, Alison Lou has garnered press from both the editorial end including Vogue, WWD, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle and celebrities like Blake Lively, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Amy Adams.

Alison continues to approach Alison Lou with a sense of humor and an appreciation for luxury as her brand expands. You can find Alison Lou at it’s flagship location 20 East 69th Street and in top retailers around the world such as Net-a-Porter, Broken English, and Twist
