About The Designer
New York native Alexis Mera Damen, has had a life long enthusiasm for living an active lifestyle. Beginning with tennis and gymnastics at a young age, Alexis was also the captain of her field hockey team in high school, and is now (admittedly) a group fitness junkie. Find her at bootcamp and Bikram Yoga on the regular, and trying everything in between whenever she has the chance.
At New York's reputable Fashion Institute of Technology, Alexis studied Merchandising and Product Development and put her skills to work for nearly a decade working on the Product Development and Merchandising teams for household brands, such as DKNY Sleepwear, Tommy Hilfiger Sleepwear and Lucky Brand Sleepwear, before launching her own line.
Pulling inspiration from the women around her and the amazing city she calls home, Alexis lives and works in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn with her husband and many green plants.
About The Brand
Alexis Mera is a fusion of performance activewear and lifestyle pieces, designed to keep up with the active woman on the go. Bringing you sporty, super soft, streamlined styles that are designed for everyday living.
Inspired by the desire to simplify her wardrobe and her life, in the spring of 2015, Alexis set out to create a line of essential leisurewear pieces that were comfortable enough to sleep in and streamlined enough to wear out. Shortly after launching women started asking if they could wear Alexis' signature Jogger Pants to yoga (of course the answer is yes!). Since then, the line has evolved into a full Athleisure Collection, ranging from leggings to sports bras, comfortable dresses and everything in between.
Using only the softest fabrics on the market, AM develops silhouettes that transition seamlessly from yoga to brunch and beyond. Don’t sweat it, the brands active fabrics are quick drying and wick away moisture. All prints are digital, which eliminates wastage and reduces the use of water - resulting in a truly green printing process. Alexis cares about the environment just as much as you do.
Ethically made in New York City, AM prides itself on keeping it real with customers, known for an authentic one on one customer experience, Alexis' mission is to empower women to feel happy, healthy and beautiful in their own skin.
