ALEX AND TRAHANAS a lifestyle project, celebrated through curated fashion and entertaining pieces.

Created by Alexandra Heard and Heleena Trahanas, the online lifestyle store/design studio is the result of the duos fascination with how we undertake life’s everyday and special ceremonies. ALEX AND TRAHANAS thinks about how these moments can be elevated through quality timeless design.

ALEX AND TRAHANAS will release garments and entertaining pieces sporadically as their travels to Europe and beyond take them to source the nest of fabrics, materials and production methods. Their rst collection titled ‘Aperitivo Hour’ of Italian linen dresses and Puglian hand painted ceramics captures the warm hospitality and summer of Southern Italy.

These pieces, like many to come, are designed to be enjoyed over an aperitivo with good friends.

The debut collection includes a collection of re ned Italian linen shift dresses, made in Australia. With a focus on quality, wearability and ease ALEX AND TRAHANAS sourced their premium garza crepe linen fabric from one of oldest and prestigious mills in Italy. Designed to take you from day to night, available in two styles, a clean silhouette short sleeve dress and a sleeveless shift dress, and available in three classic colours white, navy and forest green, they make the perfect spring/summer dress.
