Hello! My name is Alexis. I was born in 1988, in Manila, Phillipines. I moved to Canada when I was 11, and have been living in the GTA ever since. I went to school for journalism, and now currently work for The Shopping Channel as the Web Merchandiser for Fashions. Ultimately I'd love to live in New York and work for a magazine, online or print.

I fall under petite sizing, though I don't limit myself to shopping in the petite section. It's not so bad at 5'2, but it's better in 4-inch heels ;)

I gather inspiration from many things, and don't limit what I wear based on one concrete 'trend'. Most of the time though, my style hinges on solid, wearable pieces. I love when people make an effort in dressing, and not just throwing anything on.

If you'd like to get in contact with me for projects, advertising, freelance work, please e-mail me at a@alexiscoronado.com.

If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be? I always said I'd wish to stay forever 21 (no pun intended!) but with exciting opportunities that have come my way each year I'm not sure I'd like to stay the same age anymore. I'm excited to see what my future years will bring!

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor? Oh to have the opportunity to have one! I'd choose Joe Zee, hands down.
Please be my mentor!!
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I'd love to learn how to do car repairs and do oil changes and all that. Also handyman stuff, so I'll never have to hire for labour again!

If you had to work on only one project for the next year, what would it be? I'd love to work on a collaboration with a store/designer/mass label.

What is one of your favorite quotes? There's a whole lotta truth in this: 'Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess.' - Edna Woolman Chase

What is something you learned in the last week? Only you have full control of how you feel. No one else can dictate how you feel, so it's up to you, you're always responsible for it.

At what age did you become an adult? When I got a full-time job/bought my own car/learned to budget.
Questions above are from here.

My childhood nickname was 'Mango'. When my mom was pregnant with me, she'd crave mangoes a lot. I guess that's how my nickname came about!


Yummo.
If you want to spoil me rotten, buy me a Celine phantom luggage, YSL Tribute heels and a Mini Cooper JCW.

If I had a whole day to go shopping and money to spend, I would go to Paris.

If I could spend a day with a celebrity I would choose Beyonce. And the boyfriend would choose Jay-Z. Really!
Questions above are from here.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? I'd be as old as I feel then.

Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying. In the process of failing, you always learn something new!

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? As you get older, don't let what other people think affect you. Always stay true to yourself.

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Move to New York and intern at Conde Nast. I can't do it because I can't work for free at this moment.


Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? More often than not, but I'm learning to let things go.

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? New York. I belong in editorial, I just need a door!

What are you most grateful for? Opportunities.

If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? Yes, so I can intern in New York!
