The collection had some very graphic influences which you can see in her scrapbook inspirations. Notions of origami and architecture play a large role in the intricate pattern construction of the collection.
When we asked Alexandra if her graphic work reflects her fashion work she replied,
“In a way it does. Throughout the year I am constantly seeking for inspirational images, quotes, books, people. The starting point for each collection is always a concept derived one way or the other from those images I keep.
Then I usually start the designing process and start realizing the collection. It is only after all of that is done, that I usually start up with making collages, and graphic work. You could say that in the end it is completely separate from what I do as a designer, although I do really start with my collection as a starting point for each image I then try to create.”
