Meet the babe behind the brand

Hey! I’m Vanessa, the one-woman band behind Alexandrea Anissa. I work full time designing lingerie, and running my online shop.

My story

I started sewing when I was 7 years old. As soon as I graduated high school, I attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in San Francisco, and graduated with my Associates of Art Degree in Fashion Design. My final graduation portfolio was then selected to be featured at the FIDM Los Angeles campus.

My Launch

Right before graduation, I worked part-time as a technical designer, and lingerie seamstress for Dollhouse Bettie in San Francisco. A few months after I graduated from FIDM, I launched Alexandrea Anissa in 2013.

My experience

Since then, I’ve gained a devout social media following, I was featured in The Lingerie Lookbook of 2016, had my first lingerie fashion show at the W Hotel in San Francisco in 2017, and had an international brand host a Lingerie Launch Party for me in Japan. In 2016 - 2018 I also taught middle school kids how to sew at a local private school, and hosted Panty Making Workshops for women locally in my area.

My Goal

Lingerie is meant for everybody and every body. My ultimate goal is to inspire others to feel sexy, confident, and empowered in lingerie no matter what size or shape they are.

Why is Alexandrea Anissa special?

All lingerie is handmade by me one by one with lots of love in Reno, Nevada. I work full time at home. I do all my own designing, pattern making, hand-grading, cutting, sewing, packaging and some photography.

Custom Sizing

I offer custom sizing for those who don’t fit standard sizing, are fuller-bust, or have had past surgeries and require custom fit garments.

Zero Waste Designs

I create a wide range of lingerie made from leftover scrap pieces of fabric from previous designs. Zero fabric goes to waste creating unique one-of-a-kind lingerie styles.


All orders placed through my shop will come in a handmade reusable lingerie gift pouch. This gift pouch can be used to help you store your lingerie, and keep small accessories or jewelry safe.
