Alexandra Ferguson



A native New Yorker and quintessential "factory girl," Alexandra cut her teeth in the fashion industry managing sample rooms for top designers and working with local producers. She later spent gobs of time working out of southeast Asia with some of the largest (and smallest) factories and sub-tier suppliers developing accessories. Today, she runs her own company and specializes in home and personal accessories that feature sassy phrases. Everything is made from her 4,000 sq ft factory located in Brooklyn's Industry City, and uses 100% recycled felt from plastic bottles, organic cotton canvas, and domestically milled denim. Her products are sold in over 550 retailers around the world, and has been featured in dozens of publications and programs including Vanity Fair, The New York Times, the Today show, HBO Girls, Cosmo, Fitness, and Glamour.
