Alexis Romano is a writer, editor, lecturer and curator within the fashion industry and visual culture, with interests in 20th-century fashion, fashion imagery, and everyday, subjective aspects of dress. She is an adjunct faculty member at New York City College of Technology and Parsons, the New School for Design, US Editor of WeAr Global Magazine, and co-founder of the Fashion Research Network.​

Before completing her PhD in 2016 at London's Courtauld Institute of Art, Alexis studied art and design history in New York and Paris. She is currently writing the first critical study of French ready-to-wear, due out from Bloomsbury in 2020: it explores the development of the industry from the 1940s to the 1960s, and how it connected women's experience to France’s project of postwar modernization, conceptions of national identity, and modernity.
