Alexandra Mann has been a costume designer, wardrobe stylist and artist. Her talents as a designer were recognised during Liberty’s Best of British open call, after which she launched her debut collection of British-made wash bags at the flagship store. Her collection - the Alexandra Mann x Liberty collection - continues to appear at the Liberty's London store, and at Fortnum & Mason in London.
The designer graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design from Nottingham Trent University, and went on to work as Gold Label manager for Vivienne Westwood. this gave Alexandra great insight into the connection between style and identity: “It was such an exciting and varied clientele: couture and bridal appointments, dressing actors for awards season, musicians for tours… It was a dream job.”
Dressing actors, movie stars, rock royalty, and actual royalty, she's styled an impressive roll call, including: Andrea Riseborough, Courtney Love, Naomie Harris, Pink, Agyness Deyn, Zoë Wanamaker, Harriet Walter, Daisy Lewis, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dizzee Rascal, Suki Waterhouse, Rafe Spall, Noel Fielding and Halle Berry, and has received attention from The Sunday Times Style, Grazia, British Vogue, 7th Man, Glass Magazine, and Style Bubble.
Alexandra started making clothes during pandemic, and soon after, started selling her designs from market stalls in London's Portobello and Margate. Her 'one size fits most' creations are made from at least 90% second hand fabrics, and she is committed to to producing locally.
Using fabrics from her extensive collection, sourced from markets during her travels, or rescued from car boot sales and attics, Alexandra loves nothing more than using quality vintage fabrics that have been discarded, and bringing them lovingly back to life in a stand out garment or accessory: “For me, sourcing fabric is like a treasure hunt. Often, the strangest shops are hiding gems, and I can tell when fabric that looks garish on the roll will work well.”
