A Harvard grad, Alexandra’s first job was working in investment banking with Merrill Lynch for 3 years. She would then land her first job in the retail industry as a consultant at Financo investment bank working under the late Bloomingdales CEO Marvin Traub. From there Alexandra would dive head-first into the luxury goods industry working in sales with Louis Vuitton managing the internationally renowned brand’s leather goods planning and supply chain. Her most recent job before starting her own business was overseeing retail operations at 15 North American locations for the Italian jewelry and luxury goods company Bulgari.

Her and business partner Alexis have been featured in many prominent print publications including Forbes, Fortune, and InStyle magazines. The duo has also made appearances on some of CBS, NBC, and ABC’s top talk show programs. Alexandra devotes a portion of her precious time to serve non-profit initiatives including serving on the board of directors for Dress for Success Worldwide, and working with other organizations including the Women’s Forum and Fashion Group International.
