Alexander Andronescu

Alexander Andronescu, Fashion Design/Florence '17, creates a Middle East–inspired line of tailored outerwear called Alex of Arabia. He says the colorful, embroidered jackets represent a non-religious side of the region that many Americans don’t see. Andronescu, of Romanian descent, began his journey into Middle Eastern culture after watching news footage of the Iraq war and realizing that the region was more complicated and interesting than it appeared on the news.
