Commitment and sustainable development: the key words at A-line Clothing. We are committed to help shift the textile industry and become a 100% sustainable clothing brand by operating a modern and responsible business not only through our practices and daily tasks, but also through our fabrics and fit.
A-line is a women’s clothing brand challenging conventions to create the perfect fit for the 21st century woman. Simplicity meets sophistication – the synergy results in unlikely shapes that compliment the female body.
The brand’s designs are a reflection of what the A-Line woman stands for – elegance, maturity and confidence. Designing the perfect shirt and sharing it with women everywhere was Alexandra Carneiro’s drive. Thorough and passionate about detail, the creative director at A-Line has synced her sense of taste and her 20 years’ experience in the textile industry to reinvent the essentials in a woman’s wardrobe.
Inspiration was sparked by women for whom comfort and distinctiveness come first, anytime and anywhere. A- Line curates natural and delicate materials such as cotton and silk to design easy care, functional, high quality shirts. Available in neutral shades and pastel colours, the design’s wow factor is its fit, softness and attention to detail.
Alexandra’s fascination with the sensible, clean tailoring encourages us to slow down and appreciate the balance between details, sophistication, and simplicity.
Armed with more than 20 years of industry experience as a successful fashion entrepreneur, Alexandra Carneiro- A-line’s Creative Director- decided to pursue one of her biggest dreams. In 2016, she created a label that reached far beyond fast fashion and trends.
Growing up under the influence of her mother, who was a dressmaker, Alexandra began imagining what would eventually become her future creations from a very young age- timeless impeccably executed pieces, cut from the most exceptional fabrics with artisan techniques.
The last two decades of experience and partnerships with international private labels, at her own atelier, allowed Alexandra to raise a collaborative and experienced community across her team and suppliers, both crucial to built a solid reputation known for exquisite craftsmanship and aesthetic.
Alexandra truly embodies the creations she proudly imagine- classic, simple yet sophisticated, almost as a reflection of her personality and creative deep roots, that inspire us to slow down and appreciate the balance between details, sophistication and simplicity season after season
WHAT DOES IT
TAKE TO MAKE
Because A-line is structured of women who dress other women, we have a real insight into the mosaic of roles we take on daily. And we know, that it is not our body size that makes a woman’s measurement. But rather our mindset and aspirations, that get us going all day, every day.
All our decisions are focused on the longevity of our pieces, using long lasting fabrics and accessories, ensuring that the product cycle is expanded. With this effort, we help re-shape how the consumer connects with fashion.
Each decision we make is a symbol of our commitment to defining what the future of fashion looks like. From never using leather or fur and pioneering new alternative materials to utilising cutting edge technologies, pushing towards circularity, protecting ancient and endangered forests and measuring our impact with ground-breaking tools.
