Get To Know Me
Hi! I'm Alexis. I am a Brooklyn and Seattle based Fashion Professional, Photographer and Small Business Consultant. I graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York, with a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Merchandising Management and have over 10 years of experience working on the Product Development and Production teams of many reputable brands, such as DKNY Sleepwear, Tommy Hilfiger Sleepwear, and Lucky Brand Sleepwear, to name a few.
My most recent endeavor, Alexis Mera - launched February 2015, is a women's active and leisurewear line offering sporty, super soft streamlined active and leisure pieces designed for the modern woman to transition seamlessly through out her day. And all made in New York City.
I am the resident lifestyle photographer at Alexis Mera and provide lifestyle and portrait photography services for bloggers, influencers, brands, and personal use.
Since launching AM, I have experienced the excitement and the challenges of running a small business on my own. Most recently I decided that I want to help other female founders on this crazy entrepreneurship journey! I have 4 years of small business/startup experience and I am an open book! My experience ranges from product development and project management to social media and right down to the nitty gritty of shipping logistics. It is my mission to help woman owned businesses thrive and grow. I understand firsthand, the ups and downs of starting and running your own business, and I am here to help you!
I am currently living between Ditmas Park, Brooklyn and Capitol Hill, Seattle with my husband and many green plants, my favorite workouts are boot camp and Bikram yoga, and I have a love hate relationship with my foam roller. I am a wellness enthusiast, with a strong belief in balance, I believe you should be the best YOU can be - no need for comparison.
