A bit about Xander...

Xander emigrated to Switzerland from the UK in 2012 after accepting a job at Head Office for Vans.

Following his heart, Xander went onto create his brand "Xander Kostroma" in 2018 which he manages from the canton, Ticino.

Where it all began.

Xander was born into a single parent, working class family in Swansea, Wales. Aged just 16, Xander found himself homeless. Thick skinned, he knew that his first priority was to find a way to earn money. He found a job working nights as a pot washer at a local restaurant, and during the days he continued his studies in school. A year later, Xander landed himself a more stable job, in Marks & Spencer's on the weekend working in the coffee shop.

Xander was promoted to store Visual Merchandiser which was where his interest in fashion began, moreover he realized he loved accessories and jewellery.

At 19, he left M&S and started his first business selling ex High Street clothing on eBay. Xander got accepted into university aged 21 studying Surface Pattern Design. He had developed a keen interest in retail and wanted to learn more about Head Office. He completed his HND before going on to create his first label Emi Jewellery.

His interests continued to grow.

Xander decided to move back into corporate in order for him to further his career. Using the skills he had acquired from his eBay business & Emi Jewellery, he got offered a job working as an Assistant Merchandiser in Head Office for JD Sports in Manchester. Around 2 years later he received a job offer from Vans, which was ultimately the company that brought him to Switzerland. He worked at Vans for a further 2 years before leaving to concentrate on his own brand "Xander Kostroma". More recently, Xander is experimenting with recycled plastics looking to create a closed loop business. If you're interested further, you can follow this via Instagram.
