STORIES

We believe that people are no solitary creatures; we are connected with our environment. The story goes that alchemists were in search of the formula for making gold. They wanted to transform the mundane into something exquisite. By fusing together different substances, they hoped to create the most precious material in existence; gold. At Alchemist, we pursue that same dream and believe that alchemy will occur when different elements come into contact with one another.

“We aspire to inspire, not to dictate. Because beautiful clothes feel right.”

Alchemist finds her inspiration in the stories of women and their environments. Unique, passionate, and genuine; each of these women tells a story about craftsmanship and dedication, all in their very own way.
