Current project: Owner of The Shift Creative, a custom installation, event design, and styling company, which just launched an online shop of pom-pom plant hangers, tapestries, textiles, and more.
Background: Alexis’ work has been featured on Glitter Guide, Style Me Pretty, and Green Wedding Shoes. She’s also worked closely with local event designers and fellow tastemakers, including Tori Hendrix of Sitting in a Tree and Julia Wheeler of Gunn & Swain.

Fashion philosophy: Don’t be afraid to take risks when it comes to various styles. Just own it. Also, even the smallest accessories make an impact on your outfit!
