Founder, Aille Design
Alexa is a braille fashion designer and the founder of emerging designer fashion brand, Aille Design (pronounced: eye).
At Aille Design, we work alongside the blind and visually impaired community to create fashion with braille that is fully legible and customizable. Each design is handmade in North America with premium fabrics and crystal pearls. Our pieces can be used for the functionality of the legible braille, can be dressed up as a unique fashion statement, or worn to initiate conversation about braille and the importance of accessibility.
We are honoured to have a partnership with the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) and donate 5% of profits to the organization. Select press includes BlogTO, eTalk, and Able Zine, and our braille mask design is on display at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM).
