Lexsis Ariel Henderson, BFA
L. Ariel by Lexsis Ariel Henderson is all about the juxtaposition of grace and power;
the constant conflict that lies at the core of every woman.
From a young age, Lexsis was a child who created a piece of art every chance she could. She would often envision and produce a picture of a woman in a new outfit. It was not until high school, however, that she realized fashion was the route especially paved for her.
In September of 2011, Lexsis enrolled in the Fashion Design & Production program at Lasell College and minored in Psychology until junior year. Using her understanding about personality, perception, and cognitive processes; she incorporates these into her methods of design.
During her years at school she began a custom design business and after several months, the name “L. Ariel” was chosen from her first and middle names. She then launched her first ever ready-to-wear collection in December of 2013 thus beginning her fashion design career.
Presently, Lexsis specializes in hand-making formalwear, prom dresses and bridal gowns for women. She enjoys creating structured gowns and beautiful statement pieces that give a “wow” factor. Big plans are in the works for the future of L. Ariel and her goal is to be an influential wedding dress designer, being able to bring to life the dress of any "bombshell’s" dreams, one stitch at a time.
The mission is to help bring out the most confident, sexy and classy version of the “bombshell” all while giving back to the surrounding community. In the midst of divisive efforts, this fashion designer aspires to make a difference by inspiring women of all ages to be powerful yet graceful and classy women who can, in turn, nurture others to be and do the same.
