ALEXIS brand clothing is the eponymous line of mother/daughter duo, Ana & Alexis Barbara. These local Miami designers did not study fashion and so derive their understanding of pattern making through the processes of design and production, both of which are carried out in the US, maximizing their artistic control of their vision for the ALEXIS aesthetic.
This covetable line came about after Alexis took a seminal family trip to the Mediterranean and designed 15 pieces just for the excursion during which she received endless compliments. After numerous inquiries regarding where to purchase more pieces, Alexis knew she was on to something and debuted her first collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in 2008. She and her mother have been expanding the brand ever since.
Perhaps due to the fact that these women did not formally study fashion and hence learn from experience, their clothing retains a similar quality in that you need to don the clothing in order to truly feel its magic. The flattering shapes tend to be body-skimming while the textiles are often monochromatic and full of texture with fringe or lace. Always feminine but never saccharine, this brand undoubtedly touches upon those things that women most wish to emulate; exquisite style and refined modernity.
Worn by the likes of Taylor Swift, Ashley Tisdale, and the Kardashians, ALEXIS is the brand you need for projecting a contemporary elegance. As Ana Barbara puts it: “The ideal customer is a young woman who likes to feel beautiful at all times. SheÂ doesnâ€™tÂ just want to feelÂ glamorousÂ at night or at an event. She wants to look itÂ wherever she goes.”
