Spring Fashion 2021 is now in full swing, and if the last year has taught us anything about life (and about fashion), it’s that we need to adapt and evolve, be inclusive and versatile, and most of all embrace moments of joy wherever we can. However, before Covid was even a part of our vocabulary, the husband and wife creative team of Alex and Michael TOCCIN, already had today’s fashion all figured out.
Having met in college, Alex and Michael built their relationship and their industry cred through the years; both holding positions at iconic fashion institutions. They helped style and advise everyone from family and friends to celebrities alike. As offering guidance around what to wear and how to wear it came so naturally to them, it only made sense to combine their expertise and their chemistry to launch Stylists to a T, an online fashion, styling and shopping community.
TOCCIN NEW YORK
While engaging with the @alexandmichaeltoccin community, Alex and Michael soon discovered that women were searching for options that could service around the clock lifestyles but that were fashionable, flattering and timeless. Thus, TOCCIN was born.
Bringing together Michael’s genius for design and creative direction (with Alex as his muse) and Alex’s expertise in communications and marketing, they launched the collection. Inspired by what real women need and want, TOCCIN draws from the classics and adds modern personality resulting in approachably elegant, put-together fashion that take women from daytime to evening and everything in between. The bonus: TOCCIN’s signature stretch fabric is universally flattering and effortless to wear for those twelve-hour days.
The talented pair did not stop at TOCCIN and launched LDT in early 2021. Named for their daughter, Liv Dakota Toccin, LDT is a vibrant take on everyday fashion and designed to bring joy. Infused with color, beauty and feminine power, the collection is especially relevant to 2021; bright, hopeful and reminiscent of a fresh start. Exclusively at Dillard’s stores and Dillards.com, LDT pieces are polished yet youthful and feature ageless patterns and prints that lend themselves to any occasion.
There is no doubt that we’ll see more from Alex and Michael Toccin, but for now we’ll gladly take in the styles they’ve so wonderfully mastered to make women look beautiful and feel their best.
