Sage and Ivy celebrates feminity through delicate and daring fashion inspired by a profound love for history, folklore and arts. Inspired by craftsmanship, traditional handwork and precious fabrics all across Europe.
Ideas and drawings are meticulously crafted into unique pieces by small workshops and ateliers where fashion is still an expression of the imagination.Each collection tells a fairy-tale, each single piece bears its own soul. Beneath their glamour Sage and Ivy products hide a engaged activism that aims for the valorization of craftsmanship and environmental awareness.
Alexia van der Leegte-van Engelen grew up marvelling at fashion’s behind-the-scenes magic when accompanying her mother working as a fashion PR for Laura Ashley. She spent her childhood years envisioning the edgy beauty that she graces women with today. Her mother is still her biggest inspiration.
Alexia first completed her Master in International Business at the University of Maastricht before she set out to study Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni in Milan. In January 2010 Alexia established her fashion brand Sage and Ivy.
Alexia’s work exudes a profound love for history, folklore and art. Starting in 2015, Alexia expanded her business with a bespoke service fitting unique designs for individual clients. This couture collection is the ultimate manifestation of her passion for precious fabrics and her signature feminine style, and therefore carries nothing but her name: ‘Alexia’

Starting in 2015, Alexia expanded her brand with a tailoring service custom fitting unique designs for individual clients. This couture collection is the ultimate manifestation of her passion for precious fabrics and her signature feminine style, and therefore carries nothing but her name: ‘Alexia’.
Once a design is adapted to fit the client like a glove, the actual couture piece is then made in a specialised atelier in Germany from the highest quality French and Italian fabrics.
