Mexican born and raised Alexia María Esquer is not your typical designer. Since childhood she has always been in love with the 50s and after studying in New York the love of this era only deepened, as she tells me, “Before I could even remember I was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.” This inspiration has created the foundation for her beautiful line, Alexia María, and now the opening of her new store in New York located at 27 East 67th Street, 10065, United States.
Launching her line when she was only 25 years old, María’s pieces are a stunning collection of feminine and elegant dresses, jumpsuits and cocktail coats. All of the pieces are designed to be mixed and matched within the collection and paired with her now famous versatile convertible skirt that can be worn over any of the pieces within the collection, including the long and short dresses as well as the jumpsuits to create an entirely new outfit.
Using fabrics that are handpicked using only the best fabrics such as silk faille, duchesse satin, and organza, combined with a stunning silhouette, has resulted in truly capturing the femininity of days gone by blended with a modern sense of a timeless elegance that never goes out of style.
Testament to the versatility and timelessness of María’s designs is the array of women of who have been seen wearing her pieces, everyone from Gwen Stefani, Julianne Hough, America Ferrera, Abigail Spencer, Kimberly Schlapman, Tori Kelly, Aimee Song, and Blair Eadie have been seen in Alexia María.
Since Childhood, María has had a deep love of fashion and fashion design. Also inspired by her Grandmother who makes her own clothes, María has grown up in a creative environment and loved visiting the fabric stores for hours with her Grandmother.
María’s stunning high-end womenswear line brand is based in La Jolla, California but after receiving such enthusiasm for her designs on the East coast, María has now opened up her second boutique in New York, which feels like a throwback to the 50s with the personal touch of that one-on-one connection with the Alexia María team on hand to assist when browsing the collection.
With a blend of Parisian inspired décor of white and black and with Audrey Hepburn movies playing on the European inspired patio, the store is every woman’s dream.
