After spending time absorbing the art and architecture that Florence had to offer, Italian born Alessia Prekop left her literature studies and converted to fashion, using her experiences as a primary influence for her collections. Following a move to London to study at Instituto Maragoni, Alessia was able to engage her creativity with both a rich, romantic Italian history and an edgy, urban culture - something that has fast become her design aesthetic.

Using predominantly black bases with flashes of bold colour - think pillar box red and bright fuschia - Alessia’s collection focuses on structure and a combination of fabrics to create a wardrobe for the modern woman.

Let Alessia Prekop take you on an adventure this season at Fashion Scout London, showing on Day Two at 5:30pm.
