Melding fashion, AI, art and design into a functional form
“Vivacious and over-the-top”, with “shock-value” and “heels that are too high” are all criticisms that Founding CEO and Head Designer of Canaria Alex Moss has taken on the chin and used to brand herself as a woman who can meld fashion, AI, art and design into a functional form.
We had the pleasure of getting to know Alex when Canaria took part in the Unearthed Accelerator program last year and we are delighted to welcome Alex as our second Community Contributor. Over the coming week she will be sharing articles, interviews, videos and other content that is relevant to her work improving the health and safety of the global industrial workforce through Canaria’s predictive vital signs monitoring system.
Alex has extensive experience in business management and design. She has been a creative director for ad campaigns for global fashion brands Philip Treacy, Le Roni and Doc Martens, and featured in Italian Vogue for her collaborative projects with photographer Kurtiss Lloyd. Alex was founding editor-in-chief for M2 Magazine and founding CEO of avant guard art dealership and curation company, The Court.
She has a background in Design Psychology from the Courtauld Institute and created the initial concept for Canaria with Dr Robert Finean in 2016 as part of the NASA Space Apps Challenge, where they won Global Best Use of Hardware 2016.
Alex has been profiled by worldwide media outlets including BBC Culture and the Evening Standard for her work on Canaria. A skilled public speaker (winner CSIRO Ribbit ‘Best Pitch Health Informatics 2017’), she’s recently been dubbed one of the ‘Young Space Leaders of the Future’ by the 2018 Global Aerospace Summit in UAE.
