Name: Alexandra Gizela
Lives In: NYC, Harlem
About Me: I started my business out of the frustration of not finding what I wanted for my first baby. She was due in September and so I was in search of fashionable, warm, layer-able clothing/accessories. I thought if I can't find it- then I will do it myself...and here I am.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At (what are your skills mama): I am quite organized...a bit of a perfectionist, which all of us know is both good and bad....I like to blame it on the Virgo in me. I still have hand-written plan books and check lists...it drives me nuts not to have a check next to things...so I get things done :) I think out of the box, am quite creative. I have a decent balance going between crazy and practical.
Interested In: Everything! Collaborations, sponsorships, mentoring...they all are such instrumental ways in keeping the creative juices flowing. To grow, learn, and touch others....that is what it is all about.
+I LOVE the outdoors, traveling, exploration....
+I think being of multi-cultural decent, where both sides were equally as dominant in my life (in regards to traditions, visiting relatives in far-off lands, eating all sorts of different foods from a very young age etc.) has had a massive influence on me. It instilled this love of learning about other people and cultures. In college I majored in Anthropology to quench the thirst I had to learn about the world and its people. I am one of the lucky ones able to combine this love with my business/career.
+Anthony Bordain has my dream job :)
+Sai, watching her first hand- grow and have fun is just amazing and so inspiring.
+Nicole Richie, always loved her humor and the way she stays true to her wacky self.
+Julia Roitfeld....because she is just too cool.
+Audrey Hepburn, a classic mama.
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with: I love Scotch & Soda, Stella Jean, Rag & Bone, Lanvin. I would love to work with Hazel Village! Have some cute mini leg warmers and scarves on a rabbit or owl :) I would love to collaborate with Hatch, I love their designs and being pregnant I am finding myself wanting to design preggie clothes! I know what I want and cant really find it....deja vu..... Perhaps Botkier, I love her bags and would love to do a mini kiddie line!
