The Alberto Makali
collection was launched over a decade ago in NY City's
Garment District. The original collection
consisted of item-driven novelty pieces and was
immediately accepted by the fashion conscious consumer.
As trends changed, Albert created a successful line of
embellished suiting and related separates, which would
eventually become known as Alberto Makali Sportswear.
This line was the driving force behind his decision to
open a knit and blouse division called Alberto Makali
Tops. He would soon follow with Alberto Makali
evening dresses, AM contemporary, and Alberto Makali
Outerwear, creating a loyal customer following across
the United States and abroad. His newest line of
day dress, I AM, made its debut in the Spring of 2007 as
the perfect complement to his existing collections.

Itching to expand her horizons beyond theater direction
and acting, Gita Zeltzer began conceptualizing XCVI in
the mid 1990's. She was influenced by the multi-layered
and multi-ethnic cultural feel of Los Angeles, and she
saw the "urban chaos" as a muse. Gita was inspired by
the spirit of what others considered "everyday." In
creating XCVI, she discovered that contemporary fashion
was a new and dynamic space for her artistic expression.
