Alexis Jankowski

Philadelphia Pa Usa

Junior Apparel Design major at the University of Delaware. Aspiring fashion designer concentrating in women's ready-to-wear. I gather a lot of inspiration from art, indie films, music and travel. I believe that clothing should be both expressive and transformative. When someone puts one of my garments on I hope that it elevates their mood. For me, Comme des Garçons and Meadham Kirchhoff are both design geniuses.

I interned with Christian Joy, costume designer for Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in summer 2013. My responsibilities included cutting fabric, hand sewing, designing and creating textiles, and bedazzling textiles/garments. During summer 2014 I will be interning with Women's Design at Urban Outfitters. I am also preparing to study abroad in Peru for winter 2015. I am incredibly excited for this trip, as I believe the best fashion inspiration has nothing to do with fashion at all!
