Ask Alexa Fairchild : How did you link your fashion studies to the equestrian world?

Ask Alexa Fairchild : How did you link your fashion studies to the equestrian world?
Hi Rebecca,
I have actually stopped my fashion studies, as I have too much on my plate at the moment. I am training in Holland, as well as starting up my own fashion brand. I think that dressage and fashion go quite well together. I think that dressage is quite an esthetic sport, we like to make our horses look all pretty and clean for the show arena, as well as, dress them up in their best saddle pads and bandages for training. As a rider, we also like to look good when in the saddle hahah. We like to choose our helmut, boots, breeches as well as our tailcoats,etc. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to started an equestrian inspired brand. Dressage is also extremely elegant. Therefore I am very happy to be able to mix both my passions together.
Thanks for the question,
Alexa
