It came as no surprise to learn that Alexandra was originally a catwalk model during her younger years and furnished us with a funny story of when she almost fell off the stage!

Following this early start into the fashion world, Alexandra moved into womenswear design originally.  However, on meeting her Husband who loved to make suits, she discovered that she really enjoyed the simplicity of the tailored design matching different body shapes.
