High Alchemy

Launched by Susan Sokol and Suzanne Zikas, High Alchemy is situated in SOHO at 584 Broadway between Prince and Houston Streets. The showroom has 4,500 square feet of open showroom space that features a lounge bar for guests to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The showroom will focus on a highly curated group of emerging and established designers, both domestic and international, in women’s fashion and accessories. 


Born to a German father and a Paraguayan mother, Mariela Schwarz Montiel carries creativity and a passion for discovery in her blood. 

Having spent her childhood in Paraguay, she then proceeded to study in Germany and has since achieved a wide professional trajectory across many different countries of the world.

Her indigenous origins inspired and motivated her to create Antolina, a project that bears her maternal grandmother's name and which is intended to support the indigenous community of her home country.

Each braid and weave is handmade, spreading culture and telling a story with every turn of the fabric.
