My long time partner in the business of fashion for more than 15 years, Alexandra and I have been creating both bestsellers and creative experiments for various companies, and now also for Amoode.
When starting Amoode, Alexandra was the first person I called, to ask if she would help me and join me on the development of my own brand, making slow fashion - and luckily she joined in.
Alexandra and her husband Hélder runs SPRING - a company creating shirts and dresses for high quality brands made from woven fabrics.
With more than 25 years of experience in the textile business, Alexandra knows how to juggle fabrics, fashion, and forecasts.
Production is made in-house and at local production facilities, overseen by Alexandra and her competent staff.
When designing new styles for Amoode, Alexandra and her team often has a saying in the developments. Their input on construction and optimisation is highly valued to create and make the best of the best.
The Spring garment company is certified for numerous certifications including GOTS, and B-corp for their approach to people, planet and ressources. Alexandra and Spring works continuously on improving and optimising processes for a more sustainable production.
Besides producing your next favourite shirt and dress Alexandra has a passion for cooking, funky details, and custom-made jewellery
