The Sewphisticated Designer: From Passion to Purpose, ALEXIS Story.
Updated: Jan 3, 2019
I am Alexis a self taught fashion designer, I started out designing bow ties for my son in 2015. It eventually evolved to designing custom garments to fit clients specific measurements. I had no formal education/training in fashion design YouTube, practice, my mentor and sewing classes became my source. My background consist of graduating from Central State University with my Bachelor in Science in Biology and receiving my Master of Public Health with a focus in Health and Promotion from Wright State University. I thought I was headed in the health field, but my passion for fashion was much greater. After receiving my Master's I started working in a call center and found it to be unfulfilling. I was looking to do something more inspirational with my life, so I turned to styling which eventually manifested into sewing.
As a child I was always crafty and creative. Being creative has always been etched into my DNA. I always wanted to look different from the crowd and stand out. Even though I didn't exactly know what my purpose was, I knew at some point I wanted to pursue fashion. I had no idea where to start, how to start or who I should talk to and a million other questions ran through my mind. I knew what my passion was so it was indeed time for me to live out my dream. So I did and never looked back!
