We ran into Alexndra Hilker PR gal at Neiman Marcus at an event at Neiman’s and right away we knew we wanted to interview her and get more of a sense of her style and background!
PR gal, animal lover, mountain adventurer. I got into fashion following my college graduation by moving to Paris, where I worked in trend forecasting and editorial. After two years abroad, I began to miss this great state and made the move back to Denver. I love this town and all it has to offer. It’s an exciting time to be living in such an ever-changing city, and I am eager to see what the future holds for fashion and culture in the Mile High.
-How would you describe your personal style?
Comfort comes first. Gravitating towards anything oversized or asymmetrical. I love adding edgy or boyish touches to feminine looks.
-Where are you on at 2pm on a Tuesday?
Up to my knees in bills and our PR budget! Otherwise I’m pulling looks for shoots or working on inspiration for our next event.
-What is your favorite item of clothing in your closet?
Tied between – a vintage YSL cropped tuxedo jacket with crystal buttons and a blue velvet patterned pair of bell bottoms (the latter gets more wear).
-We are having the best time dressing for fall; what is your favorite season to dress for?
I will agree with you there, Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons for dressing. The aspect of layering makes a look so much more interesting. Dark colors and rich tones, unique textures, chunky knits, comfortable boots, and lots of hats in every variety – Fall!
-If you had a theme song, what would it be?
Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. It never will get old.
-You provide major fashion inspiration for us; who is your fashion inspiration?
Books, everyday streetwear, and of course blogs are always great outlets for inspiration. I really enjoy Hilda from Freshnet, Style By Kling, Trine’s Wardrobe, Adenorah, afterDRK and many more. Unexpected styling is always so cool and imaginative.
-I never leave my house without:
Water, iPad, good tunes, flats or converse for tired feet, lip balm, iPad, a woodsy fragrance, and Carbs!
