LADY A DESIGN was founded in 2008 in Perth, Western Australia by designer and artist, Alexandra Wettstein now Crosby, Alexandra has captured the imagination of the world with its vibrant and bespoke bohemian lifestyle offering.
Since early childhood, Alexandra revelled in boundless creativity, spending countless hours drawing and painting outside in the garden. It was difficult for her mother to keep up the supply of paper, water colours & paints. She sat in a huge fabric box in her mothers atelier, dressing up while keeping her mother company. An artist at heart and with the soul of an actress, she started to create her own world of costumes, fashion and beauty.
After migrating to Perth from Europe in her teenage years, she did her bachelor of art, later studied fashion design and decided that the combination of the theatrical world and costume is at her hearts desire. She enrolled yet into another 3 year university degree of costume design at WAAPA in Perth and graduated receiving the "Best Costume" award.
She was immediatly snapped up by the Western Australian Ballet where she profoundly learned the skills of building costumes that are flexible, durable and beautiful in superior quality.
During all this time she was creating costumes for the professional industry such as Burlesque.
And once she moved to Europe has also had the chance to work at the Stuttgart Opera and Ballet and Zurich Ballet.
She immersed herself into the worlds of the sustainable and wearable art and draws her inspiration from nature herself.
A treasured item, every LADY A DESIGN piece is hand-cut, every crystal and decoration is applied with precision and stitch is placed with knowledge, wisdom & joy of creation, and above all, everything is made with love.
