ALEXANDRA PIJUT GREW UP IN FLORIDA AND ALWAYS KNEW THAT ART AND FASHION WOULD BE A PART OF HER FUTURE. SHE SPENT HER FREE TIME FOX HUNTING AND DANCING, WHICH SHE OFTEN REFERENCES AS A POINT OF EXPLORATION OF THE JUXTAPOSITION BETWEEN TRADITIONAL TAILORING AND ELEGANT, FEMININITY. THE DAUGHTER OF A SURGEON AND A NURSE, PIJUT APPROACHES FASHION IN A DETAIL-ORIENTED MANOR, IMPLEMENTING TRADITIONAL COUTURE TECHNIQUES IN HER WHIMSICAL, MODERN DESIGNS.

 

PIJUT HONED HER SKILLS AT THE SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN WHERE SHE STUDIED LUXURY RTW AND EVENING WEAR DESIGN, GRADUATING IN 2017. FOLLOWING GRADATION, PIJUT WAS SELECTED AS THE SOLE DESIGNER TO REPRESENT SCAD IN THE 2017 SUPIMA DESIGN COMPETITION, WHERE SHE DEBUTED HER COLLECTION AT NEW YORK AND PARIS FASHION WEEKS. 

 

TODAY, PIJUT IS A MULTIFACETED FASHION DESIGNER WHO CURRENTLY RESIDES IN NEW YORK CITY. WITH EXPERIENCE IN BOTH MASS AND LUXURY MARKETS, SHE IS A WELL-ROUNDED DESIGNER WITH AN AESTHETIC THAT TOES THE LINE BETWEEN WHIMSICAL FEMININITY AND DECISIVE PRACTICALITY.
