“How does a woman build that unshakeable belief, you might ask. By knowing exactly what she is bringing to the industry is the answer. For Alexandra, this was the understanding that, as a woman, she had a completely different perspective on tailoring than a man might: “My clients actually like the fact that I’m a woman as I come at the tailoring from a completely different viewpoint. Many men love the fact that I can offer a female eye and that I can help them create a look that their wife or girlfriend might appreciate.”
