About Alexandra Westfal

I believe that life is not just about dreaming rather it is more important to act and break the rules. I guess my deep interest in fashion appeared the same time I was born - 7 October 1989 in Riga, Latvia. My professional training started at Instituto Europeo di Design in Milan (2006) and University of the Arts in London (2008). Focused on strong traditional drawing and writing skills, the ability to think and make experimentations and a thorough understanding of movement helped me to develop my own style and increase the level of knowledge in the industry. My experience involves working with the wide range of fashion fields, such as modelling, photography, illustration, fashion design, fashion communication, fashion journalism, and, of course, it is not the hole list. I am still opened for all the opportunities which life gives me in order to improve my skills. The most important thing for me is to bring own creativity, being myself and enjoy my life.
