Fashion designer Alejandra Quesada completed her degree in fashion design between ESMOD Paris and IES Moda Mexico. She also continued to polish her knowledge and finished her degree at Central Saint Martins in London.

While in London, she worked under the supervision of renowned designers such as Isabel Marant, Tata Naka and Alexander McQueen. In 2006 she returned to Mexico and was in charge of designing Aeromexico’s (Mexico’s largest airline) uniforms. She decided it was time to move a step further and launch her own brand by the name of ALEJANDRA QUESADA.

She loves sports, music and her favorite hobby is going to concerts. Dancing, traveling and watching movies are also things she enjoys. When it comes to her daily routines, besides drinking coffee, juice and going for a run, she has two golden moments: catching up with her readings and having a good meal.  Her best achievement is being able to work in what she loves the most. She originally got the idea of being a fashion designer from her geography teacher. “When I was a girl, I asked him what he thought I could be and he said I looked like a fashion designer,” she told us.

For her, unique style is represented in just one trait, a strong personality. About her style, “I dress very simply, something around the lines of ‘The Special Normal and The Perfect Boring,’” she said. About her designs, “They’re more psychedelic nun-sort of style,” she said.  The oldest piece inside her closet is a 20s Charleston sequin dress and the next thing she’ll add to her closet are probably shoes, socks and panties.

The three styles that inspire her are Grunge, traditional clothes from indigenous peoples in Mexico (particularly the Zapotec Muxes) and Sci-Fi. Her main purpose as a designer is to merge the margins between fantasy and reality and to be able to collaborate with a wide and diverse range of people. “For me, design is a sort of a time game,” she said.  “It requires looking into the future and trying to work out what people might be wearing in a year’s time. Fashion for me is representing bits of history because it talks about a specific time.”

Dynamic and creative, Alejandra Quesada always thinks out of the box, she is not scared of taking risks and is always innovating trends. The Fancy Archive congratulates Alejandra for her dedication and amazing proposals within the fashion world.
