Hear more from Alexa on our blog →

My Name is Alexa Tarantino and I am a NYC-based jazz saxophonist, educator and composer. I play saxophone mainly, but also flute and clarinet. I tour with my own group, the Alexa Tarantino Quartet, and with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, among others.

Jazz education is very important to me, so I often build that into my travels and visit with students along the way.

We see glamour in your future. Inspired by our Zinnia Dress, our Zinnia Top brings the allure by marrying a fitted bodice in structured, mid-stretch European ponte with a soft European mesh layer floating over her neckline and one arm. Her asymmetrical one-shoulder silhouette underneath only makes Zinnia that much more of the perfect cocktail piece.
