Alejandra Burguette is a textile designer based in New York City. 

A Surrealistic Designer, Opera Singer - Soprano & Performance Artist, BURGUETTE is a multi media artist that works beyond the existing concept producing couture, wearable textile art pieces and one of a kind textile accessory pieces. "Help the environment with sustainable wearable art pieces that will last a lifetime, instead of falling into the mass production market. , every little strap or remaining fabric is used for the process of another product.

She approaches fashion with a story by preserving craftsmanship, as she creates pieces where no fabric is wasted showcasing the creative process on stage to her audience using her other talent as an opera singer performing along with dancers wearing her designs as a powerful artistic platform maintaining the craft alive with a sustainable approach shown on stage along with the final designs as a continuing process….

 

She started this idea back when she was very young but began doing it on 2016 as she opened the show at Chelsea piers in 2016 at the Parsons Benefit gala where she sang opera along with the models dancing around her. She introduced the idea of working with both the Mannes school of music and Parsons Design The New School for her thesis as she worked with a composer from the music department for the show as the beginning of an artistic textile music revolution.

After graduating from Parsons School of Design with 2 degrees both in the Associate program and Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. She is now working in her design brand.
