Alexandrea Anissa is a brand I’ve been following on Facebook almost since it launched, so I was thrilled when owner Vanessa agreed to be interviewed for the Esty Lingerie blog. She’s also giving away a US$50 gift voucher – details of how to enter are at the end of this post (don’t forget to enter Mina Confidants and Esty Lingerie harness giveaways too!)
Vanessa says she’s influenced by popular indie brand Hopeless Lingerie and I think it definitely shows in both her design aesthetic and the candid photography style of her lookbooks – occasionally when something shows up in my Facebook feed I think it’s Hopeless for a moment! But her brand is also unique in it’s own right too, being an unusual combination of edgy and girly with lots of strappy details placed against vibrant pink and purple florals, and pretty lace pieces featuring subtle gothic elements.
I spoke to Vanessa to find out more about where she gets her inspiration from, and how exactly she goes about designing and producing a new garment…
When did Alexandrea Anissa launch and what’s the story behind the name?
I launched Alexandrea Anissa in Sept 2013. The name came from an actual girl named Alexandrea Anissa. I instantly fell in love with her style/ persona on Myspace when I was 15 or 16 and decided I would name my future line after her.
