About ALEKSANDER SIRADEKIAN
Aleksander says that his shoes are not for special occasions — they are for your everyday life because life itself is a special occasion.
Aleksander Siradekian was born on May 14, 1978 in Tbilisi, Georgia. He studied at the Tbilisi Academy of Arts. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, he moved to Moscow. Since 1997 he has been working as a stylist with celebrities. Aleksander’s first project was Fresh Art, a couture brand dressing celebrities. Aleksander was making shoe collections and did overall styling for the project together with his two partners. Among Fresh Art clients were singer Marilyn Manson and his ex-wife Dita von Teese. Brand ALEKSANDER SIRADEKIAN was established in 2013, and the first big success was in Paris at the TRANOI fashion trade exhibition. In 2019 Aleksander created his first collection of shoes in collaboration with London-based designer of Georgian origin David Koma. Together they created three collections shown at London Fashion Week.
Today ALEKSANDER SIRADEKIAN shoes are presented in Paris, Monaco, Dubai, Barcelona, Kiev, Odesa, and other big cities around the world. Every shoe has its name, and some of them are devoted to Aleksander’s friends and muses like “Emma”, called so after Alik’s mother Emma; or “Miranda” after a singer Miranda Mirianashvili or “Eka” after it-girl Eka Orjonikidze. In partnership with A1Tuning company, Alik created interiors for the Mercedes-Benz V-VIP luxury car 10. The iconic pieces of the brands are pumps with delicate fringe called IZO bow and a shoe collection with flags called “World without borders,” which the designer had launched just before the pandemic broke out.
Adriana Lima and other prominent celebrities are devoted clients of the brand. However, Aleksander’s muse has always been his wife, Liza, a singer and a socialite. The couple has two lovely daughters, Emmanuelle and Vivienne.
