Fashion Week El Paseo™ 2017
FIDM Designer Alexandra Parel

Alexandra Parel
FIDM/ Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising

A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Alexandra Parel is moved by contemporary art, but her creative instincts are also stoked with more animated stimuli; namely, the beautiful Siamese fighting fish. Parel designs wearable art for the modern woman, relying on her background as a sculptor and fine artist and incorporating “free-hand” draping into many of her silhouettes. Her modern collection juxtaposes crisp and clean with ornate and intricate. She’s interested in a future of fashion illustration and Hollywood costume design.
