Renovate your wardrobe.

Behind the Name

APB Designed comes from my lifelong love of monograms. While I go by Lexi, my full name is Alexis Paper Bottern. Yes, my middle name is actually Paper, it’s my mom’s maiden name. Traditionally, a monogram goes in the order of first-name, last-name, middle-name, but for the purposes of this brand, I chose to go in the order of my initials: first-name, middle-name, last-name.

About the Founder

I’m currently an undergrad student at the University of Wisconsin - Madison majoring in Interior Architecture. While design wasn’t a part of my high school experience, I’ve fallen in love with the ability to express myself artistically in college. What began with an old denim jacket and an upcoming tailgate season soon developed into much more. I found myself trying to personalize everything I own, both old and new pieces. I find inspiration everywhere and love applying it to each new piece. Currently I offer stitching, painting, beading, and distressing services, as well as a combination of any or all of them. My goal is to help you express your own individuality, however you choose to show it!
