Alexandra Kapsala was born in Greece where after finishing school in 2003, she entered the School of Architceture of NTUA (Athens). She attended art and aesthetics courses for architects, but soon realised that she was not interested in courses regarding statics and building materials. Since fashion was her main interest since she was a child, she moved to London where in 2006 she was offered a place in BA Fashion Design w/ Marketing in Central St Martins College of Art and Design.

She gained invaluable experience by working in the design studios of Alexander McQueen, Giles and Maria Francesca Pepe. In May 2010 Alexandra presented her final collection in CSM.

Since her graduation she has worked as a freelance designer, pattern cutter and stylist.

In May 2011 she set up her own label with Central St Martins classmate and print designer Rebecca Shulberg.
