The Presence

The most overlooked city in New Jersey has just received a massive profile boost in the form of an authentic atelier designed by a highly overlooked designer, (yet a 'designerlebrity' in the making) Alicia Bailey of Bailey Li Interiors. Bailey's work consists of quite a few commercial projects, but seem to have a running theme of supporting local artisans. The Presence, her most recently completed project, is tailored to support and preserve the talents of those local artisans she designs for.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK! 'The Presence' Designed by Bailey Li Interiors

The Presence atelier is owned by fashion designer Khalid Semper. Now before The Presence got its presence, Bailey created the art of the deal to make this project become a reality for her client Semper. She remembered the city of Orange starting an arts and real estate development initiative with a goal to preserve the neighborhood. The developer was Hands Inc., a nonprofit organization. Bailey reached out to Hands Inc and successfully found her client an amazing and affordable bi level loft space. A space large enough to meet Semper's retail needs and meet his purpose to create a community that would support other creatives just like him.

Bailey far exceeded my expectations and vision for the space and I’m still amazed at the results.

The Presence is an atelier that has two primary objectives, the first is to develop a wardrobe of essentials that stands at the intersection between style and substance. We are a direct to customer atelier uninterested in chasing trends and whose price points consist solely of the labor and materials without a mark up. The second objective is to provide and curate a cultural space that will act as a platform and hub for exceptional artists, across disciplines, whose talents will be on display for public viewing on a continuous basis.
