Tell us about yourself. Where are you from and where do you live now?
Alexa and I, Sophia, are two cousins born and raised in Miami and spent our lives traveling the world which inspired us to create Krewe du Q. We wanted a brand that was feminine, comfortable and perfect for any adventure. Full of vibrant prints and flattering silhouettes, each piece in our collection is named after an amazing place around the world that inspires us.
What did you do career wise before starting your brand?
I, Sophia, worked as the director of operations and marketing for an e-commerce fashion site while Alexa was in Advertising at a prestigious agency.
Describe your brand. When did you launch? Where are you based? Why did you start it?
Krewe du Q launched in 2018 while both of us still had our full time jobs. It was a part time project for us both till it came to the point that we had to decide what we really wanted. We both quit our secure jobs to take a risk and give all our energy to building our company. It was the best decision ever.
Congratulations on launching your latest collection! What was your inspiration? Favorite piece(s)?
Thank you! We were inspired by all the places we wanted to travel to while we were stuck at home during pandemic. Greece, Italy, France, the list can go on! Our favorite pieces would probably be the Kea Top and Sicily Pant or the Samos and Croix Dress. Really so hard to choose- we love them all!
