During her studies at a university in Scotland and inspired by the mid-century Bohemians of Paris and the Bloomsbury Group Alix Verley-Pietrafesa picked up a needle and began making clothes by hand.
Seeking to create pieces which reflected the free-spirited muses of her studies and facilitated adventure, Alix of Bohemia was born, formally established in London in 2009. The last decade has seen Alix living and working in Europe, Asia and the US. Her far-flung travels, stories, techniques and textiles are the canvas of her collections.
Alix is the offspring of an Italian textile ancestry and generations of French artists, she currently resides in New York. She sews daily in her Atelier with her team, producing limited runs, one of a kind pieces and custom commissions by appointment. In 2018, Alix of Bohemia expanded beyond her bespoke pieces, and began designing and producing collections for the annual seasons.
