The offspring of an Italian textile legacy and generations of French artists, it was at University in Scotland that Alix Verley-Pietrafesa, inspired by the mid-century Bohemians of Paris and the Bloomsbury Group, picked up a needle and began making clothes by hand.
Seeking to create pieces which reflected the free-spirited muses of her studies and facilitated adventure, Alix of Bohemia was born, formally established in London in 2009. The last decade has seen Alix living and working in Europe, Asia and the US. Her far-flung travels, collected stories, techniques and textiles are the canvas of her collections.
Alix currently resides in New York, where she sews daily in her Brooklyn Atelier with her team, producing limited runs, one of a kind pieces and custom commissions by appointment.
