Alexa Castillo born in La Ceiba, Honduras. Launched her fashion label "Castillo", a couture luxury brand, under her namesake company Alexa Castillo Inc. in June 16th 2009. She was discovered by Jess James, fashion editor for the city papers and magazine at Wilmington NC. Alexa Castillo was wearing her first self-made dress "country kitchen", while on a stroll at the city park. After the released article by Jess James was printed many of the cities boutiques called her with interest to buy from her collection. It was then that Alexa Castillo was inspired to chase her dream with zeal to be a fashion designer.
Momentum with her first success launched her into the fashion community after hosting her own fashion show, appearing in several boutiques, gaining exposure all around the region and having near immediate sellouts of her many classic designs.
