An Australian company, Alx-zia (pronounced ‘Alexia’) is a luxury fashion brand specialising in high quality, ethically sourced fur products. The business is the brainchild of local Perth entrepreneur Amanda who has always wanted to share her love of luxury with other women and believes that when you look amazing on the outside, you feel amazing on the inside. To create a luxury fashion item that was timeless, stylish and elegant was at the heart of her mission when creating Alx-zia.
The idea to start a fashion business had been brewing for some years, but it wasn’t until Amanda got her own rabbit fur vest that she realised how much she adored the style, feel and look and decided to bring this to others in her own business so that they could feel the same way.
Now Amanda empowers women around the world to step into the most fabulous version of themselves, with beautiful soft warm fur pieces, from rabbit fur vests, jackets and coats to rabbit fur throws, angora beanies and scarfs. Many pieces in the range are hand crafted and importantly, only ethically sourced fur is used in the creation of all her products.
Amanda has grown up in Perth and lived there all her life. She loves Perth, the weather and the beach lifestyle it offers. She comes from a big family and is an aunty to two nephews and two nieces. She is also mum to her much-loved fur baby Maxi, an adorable bichon frise she adopted from the Dog's Refuge Home in Shenton Park. She loves nothing more than walks with Maxi, shopping with friends and the occasional cocktail at the local bar!
Alx-zia products are made using ethically sourced fur which is a waste product of the meat industry. In repurposing the fur to create products such as jackets, throws and scarves, value is created from material that would otherwise be discarded, resulting in a sustainable pelt source.
