Fashion designer from South America, Alexia Ulibarri currently lives in Mexico City, where she launched her namesake brand ALEXIA ULIBARRI in 2009. In the same year, she presented her first women’s collection titled "Dark Romance". Since then, she has actively participated in all the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico editions, proving very successful at each round.
Born with a natural talent in mixing functionality and creativity, Alexia decided to refine her skills in Europe, choosing the School of Fashion Istituto Marangoni London to complete her academic training with a Fashion Design intensive course in 2005.
The period spent in London has enabled her to develop an ‘experimental’ approach to Fashion, which is the result of a nostalgic, romantic synthesis of personal stories and work experiences with important designers as the Tata-Naka twins and María Grachvoguel.
Alexia experiments with top quality materials, textures, cuts and prints in her collections, thus fashioning contemporary looks which find their best expression once they fit a body, thanks to special arrangements that make each garment unique. ALEXIA ULIBARRI creations have been worn by top models of the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio, Heide Lindgreen, and Eugenia Silva.
Her women’s collections have been recently enriched with a handbags collection and a custom-made line of bridal gowns. The brand, which is already sold in exclusive boutiques in Mexico City, Cancun, Dubai, Hong Kong and Israel, is currently going on an international spree in the RTW.
