"I am fascinated by personal style. Just as a novel, a poem or a painting reflects the artist, fashion shows us the artist within."


New York-based designer Susan Alexandra was raised in the Midwest. When she was seven, Susan scored her first copy of Vogue. "The cover was Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta in Issac Mizrahi ball gowns—bright purple and pink cream puffs! I was completely enthralled. I wanted to be part of that magical world."


Her style is lush, romantic, whimsical, humorous and informed by sharp juxtapositions. Best known for her colorful hand-painted jewelry and purses, Susan makes designs that dazzle one's inner child. Her work has been featured in Elle, Vogue, Refinery29 and Forbes, among several others.
