Everything is based on a minimalist feel, honed by Jo Liu's background in fashion design and in her experience as an assistant designer at Jen Kao. Previously, Jo had completed not only a degree in Psychology and Economics from New York University but also a degree in Fashion design from the prestigious Parsons' School of Design in New York City.
Spending time in Florence, Italy, plus working alongside design greats and at top brands such as Suen-Cooper, Tina Tang Jewellery and more until in 2011, Jo opened her own jewellery studio. Each piece from Alibi is hand-made in NYC by Jo so the quality is a sure thing and she can control the whole creative process from inception to completion.

This is why in-the-know jewellery fans are now dripping with Alibi's super sexy body-garment jewellery, cuffs and hinge-style rings. Each piece is designed to easily mix and match with any other piece from the same brand so you can basically build up a collection from one piece and take it from there.
You'll notice that fashion media doyennes from all the glossy magazines have been clamouring to feature Alibi jewellery; it's affordable but unique and will get you noticed for all the right reasons. The cover of Vogue, Elle, Nylon, Paper, Foam, Diva, Harper's Bazaar and Audrey magazines are among some of the places where fans have noticed Alibi jewellery leaping out from the pages in full effect.
