Fashion is for fashion people – well, not quite: It looks like after DfT winner Alexandra Kiesel got a lot of press coverage in fashion magazines, she also caught the eye of editors from other creative fields: Architectural Digest Magazine features the award-winning newcomer in its October issue, praising the geometric shapes, angular outlines and high-contrast colors of her debut collection „Baukasten Individualisten 12/6/24”. And when looking at an early draft of her moodboard for the collection printed next to the interview, one can clearly make out why architects would also be fascinated by her work: The influence of Bauhaus artists on her design is easy to see the way she places the primary colors next to each other in geometric patterns. Alexandra, graduate of the Berlin-Weissensee School of Art, doesn’t only look at what other designers do, but draws inspiration from a lot of different fields of art.
„Without fashion“, Alexandra states in Architectural Digest, „I’d probably be just a poverty-stricken artist in Berlin, who does an exhibition every now and then, but is happy with it!“ And with fashion? She is happy, too. Very much so. Now she’s even got some architecture people’s admiration on top of that!
