With a mother and father deep into the fashion world Stacy Novich was born for the business. “I had it in my blood… fashion was the hot topic at our dinner table,” said Novich.
After high school Novich left home to study at Boston University where she obtained her degree in advertising. However, following graduation, Novich decided to pursue a career in fashion instead. “My dad was in the business my whole life and then my mom opened the store. It was just so second nature to go into it.”
Novich worked in the Garment District in sales, product development and merchandising, forming lasting relationships with buyers all over the country. These connections would later be useful in her future endeavors. Novich spent her early years dealing with specialty stores and major department stores throughout the country such as Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Barney’s.
Eventually Novich’s entrepreneurial spirit took over and with a partner she opened up a wholesale multi-line repping company called Stab Sales. Also in the Garment District, Stab Sales carried an average of five junior and contemporary sportswear lines at a time. Her intense involvement with this venture, though invigorating, seemed to leave little time for a personal life. Desiring more flexibility than her New York based company could offer, Novich chose to engage in another fashion opportunity.
At the time her mother Marsha Srednick needed help with her Livingston, NJ store Complements Two. Srednick knew her daughter Novich would be a great asset. Novich saw this as a great opportunity to cut down her commute time and direct more attention to her personal life. “This was a chance for me to focus on a family without compromising my business,” said Novich. She closed her New York office and began working with her mother, Marsha Srednick at Complements Two.
Stacy Novich is married to husband Steve and has teenage twins, Remy and Mac.

Hi Stacy. I had to laugh when I saw where you lived. I live right outside of Atlantic City.A couple years back my daughter and I were checking out the colleges she was accepted to. We had to go to FIT and LIM. At that point in time my daughter was considering going for fashion merchandising. Fashion is sort of in our blood too. My mother was a fashion illustrator and I was brought up to know everything about classics and fads and whatever she could instill in me regarding the fashion industry. So I did the same with my daughter. Well anyway, on the way home from NY we got lost. My daughter has always wanted to go to the Short Hills Mall. Even being lost she found that mall. So when I saw you from Livingston all I thought of was that special memory of how my daughter even lost can find a mall.
