My name is Alece Plasencia, CEO/Fashion Designer/Artist for Blaxicana Couture. My brand is inspired by music, fashion, and art with the goal of promoting diversity and creativity via wearable art pieces. 

My personal passion as a designer has been a part of me since childhood growing up in the early 1970s in San Francisco. During this political time, my parents made sure I understood that the world is diverse with people of various cultures and backgrounds which should be embraced. As an artist, I strive to reflect this diversity in my original wearable art pieces.

In addition, I am also inspired by the political movements of the time, the vintage wear of Haight & Ashbury scene, and the music of that era. 

After serving many years as an educator, I started my online boutique in May of 2018 of one-of-a-kind custom denim jackets.  

My goal as an artist is to create one-of-a-kind pieces for people to value as wearable and timeless.

My one of a kind designs are hand-crafted, luxury couture denim jackets all include hand sewn appliques and elegant Chinese brocade lining, a process that takes many hours to complete.
The denim fabric serves as a backdrop and undergoes a treatment of stone-washing and distressing to give each jacket a unique and vintage look.

Blaxicana Couture is a memory keepsake.
