Alexia Ulibarri is fashion through its concept and functionality. After forming as a designer at The London College of Fashion, Marangoni and some courses at Central Saint Martins, he returned to Mexico in 2008 looking for generating a brand with which to identify itself to today’s woman.
So far he has fused together stories, personal and work experiences with time, art, technology, forms, and all kinds of matter, causing a process of experimentation, which herself recreates it. This time presented his collection fall-winter Chateleine, which surely will be one of the most wanted by women love to look elegant and feminine, this was how I present his proposal with a sold-out.
PM: Tell us what what you will present this season
AU: This collection is called Chateleine is inspired by two waves of female liberation, leading first is 18th century and then the 60s is the contrast of two strong women, is called Chateleine that ancient women used, like a belt where they carried all their tools, that is the emblem of the collection, which is a tribute to women , that no matter what tools to use, for in the past. In dreams, love and desire to grow, managed to mark differences in their times, then it is the contrast of these two women, the old and the sesentera, then there are many colors of grape, jade, ochre, green, wine, yellow in low tones.
PM: Talk to us about silhouettes
