BIO

Alessandra
PETERSEN

A Hand-crafted with a clean, whimsical, and feminine twist describes Alessandra Petersen’s latest clothing line. Based on Peruvian artisan traditions, Alessandra’s work is a beautiful melange of delicate knittings, Scandinavian simplicity and fine Andean textiles.

Alessandra’s line incorporates natural materials such as Peruvian pima cotton, silk and baby alpaca. The result is a collection of intricately handmade womenswear taking cues from the colorful Andes, the 1920s and her Danish roots.

“I love researching into the past — traditional artisan work prioritized quality, natural fibers and geometric designs that today seem very modern,” says Alessandra.

Alessandra holds a Masters degree from Central Saint Martin’s School of Design in London, and BA in Arts from PUCP in Lima. Following her studies, she did an internship in art direction, costume design and video installation at HKU in Utrecht, Holland after winning a scholarship from the Bellas Artes at the University of Plata, Buenos Aires. In addition to fashion and art, Alessandra also studied philosophy in Kibi, New Dehli.

Artesana de emociones, Alessandra Petersen presenta su trabajo más personal.

Artesana por la esencia misma de su estilo, por su búsqueda continua de tejidos eternos en materiales organicos como la seda, el pima o el baby alpaca,  y por la recuperación de técnicas ancestrales. Emociones porque así son sus creaciones, prendas que transcienden a sus tejidos y transmiten mucho más a la mujer que los viste.

La diseñadora estudia una Maestría en la prestigiosa escuela de diseño Central Saint Martin’s, en Londres.  Hace una pasantía en dirección de arte, vestuario y video instalación en la HKU en Utrecht, Holanda, luego de haber ganado una beca en Bellas Artes en la Universidad de la Plata, Buenos Aires, haber estudiado Filosofía en  Kibi, New Delhi y ser bachiller en Artes  Plasticas en la PUCP de Lima.

Además, durante los diez años que pasó fuera del Perú, vivió en varios países nórdicos, aprendiendo diferentes tecnicas en punto, razón por la cual se aprecia una presencia importante de influencia escandinava en sus creaciones y formas.

Ahora, su vuelta al Perú ha supuesto también para ella, una vuelta espiritual a las técnicas y tejidos de los Paracas precolombinos, una búsqueda que ha quedado reflejada en su  ultima colección de piezas únicas que por su forma de llevar suponen mucho más que un complemento, son una pequeña gran obra que converje el diseño y lo artesano, y que sorprende y embellece a la mujer.
