I have a confession that I am not a huge “dress girl” usually. While I consider myself girly, it takes a special occasion or designer to get me to slip on satin. It wasn’t until the upcoming nuptials of a friend that I set my mind of exploring glamorous gowns, which led me to Alexia María.
Born and raised in Mexico, Alexia María Esquer is the designer and creative director of Alexia María. Since her childhood, fashion and designing have always been a passion and interest of hers. Growing up, her sense of style drew inspiration from the 1950s and now it has transpired to be the same source of inspiration for her designs. After living and studying in New York, at the age of twenty-five, she launched her eponymous collection in the spring of 2014.
Alexia María is a high-end womenswear brand based in La Jolla, California. Alexia María designs are made from fabrics such as silk faille, duchesse satin, and organza—hand picked only from the very best. The combination of these fabrics, details, and beautiful silhouettes capture the femininity, true elegance, and classic yet modern essence of the brand.
