A well-traveled collection of vintage textiles and the spontaneous purchase of a sewing machine led to Alix Verley Pietrafesa making garments during her art history studies at university in Scotland. She created what she wanted to wear: original, handmade garments inspired by the women in her family, the rebellious 1970’s, and the Bohemians of post-war Paris.
Alix of Bohemia formally started in London, 2011 when people began buying the jackets Alix created off her back. Over the next decade Alix mastered her craft by designing and tailoring over 2,500 bespoke and one-of-a-kind pieces.
Staying true to her hand-focused approach by working closely with artisans, Alix began making seasonal collections in 2018. Pieces are made using, and thereby supporting the continuation of, generations-old production processes. Hand embroidery, hand weaving, hand quilting, and hand printing from India to Guatemala, Portugal to the United States, are features in her collections.
Born in New York, Alix comes from family of Italian textile makers and French artists. Today, Alix and her partner Sebastian run Alix of Bohemia together. The collections are created in their New York studio with a focus on natural fibers and hand processes, through an American Bohemian lens.
