Alexander first realized his design potential when he began turning his sketches into reality, making pink Santa skirts for his high school cheerleading squad. After studying design for three years at Columbia College in Chicago, he’s already won The Future of Chicago Fashion Award. His designs have always been influenced by dark ominous shapes and asymmetry. Even in his free time, Alexander is designing! His hobby is creating costumes for drag queens.

Why he’ll win?

Alexander has an expansive vision and more than enough ambition. He’ll bring the experimental edge into the competition with his unexpected use of textiles and manipulation of the silhouette to be the last man standing.
