My name is Alex Higson. I’ve worked in fashion for the last 5 years, as a model, designer, and personal stylist.
Alex’s journey into the fashion realm began as a catalog model while studying literature at NYU. Those early days in front of the lens ignited a spark in him, and he quickly realized that fashion was more than just clothing; it’s a form of art that can transform lives.
Thus, he took the biggest risk of his life – dropping out of NYU and joining the Academy of Art in California, one of the top fashion schools in the country.
This jump took him deeper into the creative process. He immersed himself in design, seeking to translate his vision into clothing that tells a story. As a second-generation Indian immigrant in the United States, he brought a unique perspective to the industry that blends traditional influences with contemporary flair.
The desire to make fashion accessible to all led him to become a personal stylist. He’s had the privilege of helping individuals from diverse backgrounds discover their unique style, and now he hopes to do the same through Magic Of Clothes.
At the heart of MagicofClothes.com lies a profound purpose and unwavering mission—to fill a void in the fashion industry that had long been overlooked. The fashion landscape, as Alex realized, had become polarized, with most websites exclusively focusing on either fast fashion or luxury labels.
This binary approach left a significant gap in the middle ground—a space where quality, sustainability, and affordability harmoniously coexist.
Our mission is crystal clear: bridge the gap between fast fashion and luxury by championing brands that offer not only high-quality, stylish clothing but also prioritize sustainability and ethical practices.
We firmly believe that fashion should not come at the expense of our planet or the well-being of those who craft these garments. Thus, we are committed to showcasing brands that embody these values, encouraging a more responsible and conscious approach to fashion consumption.
Alex is a personal stylist and has worked with over 30 clients. He has also worked in the manufacturing and design side of things, with a primary focus on leather jackets and suits.
When he’s not obsessing over MOC analytics, you can find him curating fashion content on Instagram.
Jane is currently pursuing a fashion communication degree at the Otis College of Art and Design. She wants to make a dent in women’s fashion, through the power of her words.
She also runs the Pinterest page for Magic Of Clothes, which you can check out here.
