Read the interview with Alexandros on Leather Naturally.

At the age of 14, after seeing a pair of Manolos on the big screen, I was enchanted by their beauty and elegance, and I therefore started designing during my spare time as a hobby women’s footwear. ​A few years later, after graduating with a biology degree, I decided to pursue my other great passion and make my dream into a reality, that of becoming a footwear designer. I turn to nature and animals as my biggest sources of creative inspiration, and through my designs I create stories and raise awareness about the unknowns of biology.


As a women’s footwear designer, I have designed collections for brands in Milan, Naples, London and Athens. In Milan I was selected amongst design students of 2018 from Arsutoria school, to develop a collection from concept to final product and present it at the Fashion Graduate Italia Fashion Show, whereas in London I completed a footwear designer internship at Kat Maconie where I worked on the creation and designing of the SS 2020 collection.
