About ALEXIA ULIBARRI
An independent designer based in Mexico City, Alexia Ulibarri studied fashion design and pattern cutting at the London College of Fashion, Marangoni and Central Saint Martins. Upon completion of her formal training, Ulibarri returned to Mexico City in 2008 in order to develop her own label, ALEXIA ULIBARRI, in February 2009. That year, she showcased her first collection “Dark Romance” in Mexico City and has gone on to showcase her collections in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico every season since SS 2011.
Ulibarri believesthat fashion is a mixture of inspiration and the understanding of the woman’s form. By fusing her personal experiences, stories and work experience during her time in London; she developed a customised and experimental process that has resulted in a concept and design formula in which she finds herself and her collections.
Alexia Ulibarri is nostalgic, dramatic and always concerned of the cut and fit of a garment. She is continually inspired by the past and present. She believes each piece in her collection is unique and seeks to offer different personalities and body types a variety of options via special details and cuts that make them stand out pieces. Her concept is materialised and brought to life, only when the garment reaches its final destination… on the female body.
