Alexandra Poenaru is a poly-creative, based in the French Riviera.
Born in Paris from a family of Artists & Scientists, growing up in such unconventional surroundings allowed her to develop a vision well balanced between creativity & analytics.
Alexandra has been working in the design industry since 20 years. Starting as a Fashion Designer in Paris, she naturally expanded into other creative fields such as visual branding consulting, interior decoration and photography while living in the South Pacific.
She speaks French, English & Italian fluently.
Because of her life and unusual path, Alexandra developed a very unique & eclectic style, that can be described as an unexpected metissage: where you can sense her Scandinavian origins, as well as the cosiness brought from her travels and the originality of her artistic up-bringing, all linked together with the French elegance.
Alexandra comes with a professional experience full of diversity and commercial imperatives that taught her to think outside the box and help you bring your project to life.
She loves challenges and is used to working on original projects.
