This September, LDS fashion designer Aleksandra Salo will be featuring 20 of her designs during New York Fashion Week.
Aleksandra Salo had a dilemma: She couldn’t find anything to wear.
Salo, originally from a small town in Russia, had a very specific style in her mind, and none of the clothing stores in Utah, or anywhere else, fit that style. She decided to ask a seamstress friend of hers to make a dress for her.
When Salo described the type of dress she wanted, her friend suggested she take a pattern-making class at Brigham Young University, where Salo was a student, so she could bring her ideas to life.
After taking that one class at BYU, Salo would never need to ask a friend to make her clothing again.
