Alejandro Barzaga, a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design student at the Miami International University of Art & Design (MIU), was recently featured in El Nuevo Herald online and TV channel, America Teve for his wedding dress sketches for the future princess Meghan Markle. Alejandro created these sketches for a Fashion Trends course assignment from MIU fashion director and instructor, Mrs. Parsons. For this assignment, students were asked to sketch dresses they could envision Meghan Markle wearing on her wedding day with Prince Harry. Before sketching the royal wedding dress, Alejandro began researching and analyzing Markle’s style aesthetic as well as the royal family history. He uncovered information about fabrics and prints as well as crowns and gems, which he incorporated into his final design sketch. Alejandro is a multi-faceted artist who works as an Interior Design consultant in a high-end furniture store in Miami. He has always been passionately creative, with his passion for the arts in part sparked by his uncle—an artist who introduced him to the world of design. Alejandro is particularly in the world of fashion, with a focus on how garments are made and how a garment can be deconstructed to discover new ways of designing it.
