Alex designs her dream

Alex's wish to be a fashion designer

“ I thought it was a mission impossible. This was something that she really wanted. Seeing these people that actually do this on a daily basis, take the day for her, that really took my breath away. ”

Eleven-year-old Alex has always known she wanted to be a famous designer, so the fashion-forward teen stitched together the perfect wish to help her forget her rheumatologic disorder. Clad in her most trendy outfit, Alex flew out to Los Angeles to make her design debut with Trixxi Clothing Company, Inc. She spent her behindthe-scenes day with Trixxi’s designers, discussing design, wearing a “happy cape” for inspiration and receiving lots of new design tools and pointers. Upon returning home to Miami, Alex received a package from Trixxi with a beautiful outfit (named after her). Her father said her wish was one of the greatest moments in her life so far. “I thought it was a mission impossible. This was something that she really wanted. Seeing these people that actually do this on a daily basis, take the day for her, that really took my breath away.”
