The Team


Graduated in Architecture and Textile Design, at the Chelsea College of Art, in London, Alessandra grew up surrounded by various cultural references. Born in Rio de Janeiro to an English mother and a Brazilian father, she lived in Bahia and Maranhão, and travelled extensively to England in her childhood. Even today, her inspiration comes from these early years. Her universe, so peculiar and intuitive, mixes her childhood memories of beach vendors selling delicacies such as oysters in the north-east of Brazil to England’s Punks with their colour pink hair. The watercolour paintings expressed in the most beautiful SISSA prints, are the translation of Alessandra´s rare sensibility and elegance. Her hospitality extends itself into the atelier-shop of the brand, where each customer is welcomed as if she were at a friend’s home.


German born, Alessandra´s husband is her greatest motivator. With a background in economic and financial, Julian has worked as an investment banker in London, New York and Hong Kong for a decade. With his planning capacity and eye for strict quality control of each process, he contributes and ensures that SISSA has a solid foundation for growth in both Brazil and abroad.
