THE BRAND PERSONALITY
I was born and raised in Costa Rica. I grew up with and surrounded by my family’s very successful tailoring business. Early on in life I moved to Australia which I have called home for over 20 years. I believe it is due to this and various cultural experiences through the many countries I toured for work in this time that I possess a compelling mix of creative flare and functional design which illuminate through my creations. In 1995 I first arrived in Perth and I was young, full of passion and ready to further an already successful career in dance and choreography. Which I did until five years ago, when I went back to my 'roots' in fashion. Ever since then, my creative energies began to shift. My artistic background is evident in each and every garment I create; an enigmatic fusion of my passion for culture, movement and art. As my drive towards multiculturalism has cultivated over the years, I have been inspired and lead to work with the Aboriginal communities of Australia. This journey led to a collection called Australia based on Rebekah Treacy’s art work (an Aboriginal artist based in the Kimberly, W.A) and was showcased in New York Fashion week 2015 with the collaboration of the Dream Time Project. This project has been a major success within the fashion industry and has drawn interest on both an international and local level.
When first entering the fashion world in 2010-2011, Mauricio worked on ‘Gossip Couture’. This line was a resounding success in Sydney and the international fashion community began to take notice. As Mauricio grew and developed as a designer he decided in 2011 to open a self-titled label that offers, a more refined and mature point of view. ‘Sophistication’ and ‘femininity’ are the overarching themes in every Mauricio Alpizar collection, but it is his attention to detail that makes his work truly noteworthy.
