Hello! "Alxndra" is run single handedly by your's truly, Alexandra Cook with help from my partner Max and our little cat Haru! I am a London based freelance illustrator and print/jewellery designer. I have a background and degree in fashion and textiles being a graduate from Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion.
ALXNDRA is a season-less street wear and accessories brand/project. With an East meets West aesthetic drawing inspirations from Japanese culture and "Kawaii". Creating key pieces with a 'slow fashion' ethos ALXNDRA experiments to update classic pieces, injecting excitement into your everyday wear and style. With an enjoyment of contrast; mixes of pop colours fuse with child-like fun in illustrations that seamlessly blend to an overall minimalist aesthetic (yes, it is possible!). Fine Jewellery is the newest addition to my project (2018)! Being the daughter of a jeweller I finally delved into the family ideals and spent a year before release, designing everyday wearable items inspired by small familiar things that I love about japan! With the help of a small awesome team in Birmingham, which helped realise ideas into reality using handcrafted techniques to create the ALXNDRA vision into beautiful sterling silver and gold/rose gold plated pieces. All products and designs on this website are drawn/designed/imagined by myself and are produced within the UK.
Along with "Alxndra" being my main project I have created textile prints for the fashion brand SABINNA and I really enjoy collaborating with others. In the past I have created merch with Brighton based shop Family Store, joined along with Super Unofficial and designed an anime themed t-shirt for their Artists series, joined the Black Winnebago Club and created designs for street wear to include in their artists roster (click here to read my interview for them), as well as being a published illustrator with card and stationery company Whale and Bird with some of my designs having been stocked in shops such as Paperchase and Scibbler. Along with this, I am Creative Director for London based band ZOOFAN. My job with the boys is to do anything from cover art, posters to photographing their press shots.
