Alejandre at MBFWMadrid
Born in Madrid, the designer Sandra Peñaranda Alejandre, studied fashion at the design school IADE. After graduating, she did her internship at Mané Mané, with the designer Miguel Becer, where she would later become part of the team for 4 years, starting her professional career in fashion. During the months of lockdown due to the pandemic, she decided to create her brand, Alejandre, and make a collection that would see the light in December 2020. In just over two years, the designer has managed to launch her website, entering the sale online and shipping worldwide, dressing celebrities such as Dua Lipa, Nathy Peluso, Bad gyal, Julia Fox and Kourtney Kardashian, and parading for the second consecutive year at EGO mbfw with her third collection.
The “Rising” collection is about emphasizing instinctive and experiential strengths that transcend bodily and mental conventions and constructions, emphasizing individuality and independence.
Classic patterns are reworked and reinterpreted in subversive ways, fusing street energy and lingerie identity with thought-provoking silhouettes that transcend versatility.
The use of various fabrics with very different characteristics coexist in harmony, from the most rigid and formal to the most relaxed and fluid. This mix evokes a series of different worlds living under the same roof and challenging the construction of the traditional garment.
