Cavalliera Founder Story
Redefining equestrian tradition with style.
Meet Viktoria Alekszi (in her early 30’s), the owner, designer and CEO of Cavalliera, a brand that grew from a little start up to a market leader in less than 10 years. Cavalliera dresses riders in over 40 countries and brings equestrian style to another level.
As a professional show jumper and dressage rider, Viktoria’s whole life was determined by her riding career. Countless hours of lessons and practices every day along with her studies and private life. She was the first to arrive and the last to leave the barn, taking care of her horses at the highest level. She was always aiming for the highest gates or most complicated practices, riding as a machine towards success. Being a competitive equestrian, usually means that you want to be the best in everything. So Viktoria wasn’t compromised by winning all the ribbons and prizes, she wanted to look the best and most unique in the ring too. That is why she started designing jackets that would fit her world of perfectionism, asking her roommate to sew the prototypes.
Her passion turned into her profession, when Viktoria’s friends, team mates, even her competitors and unknown female riders started ordering jackets from her. “Cavalliera by Viktoria” was born in 2007 in Budapest, Hungary.
Taking her new job seriously she widened her product line with show shirts, casual rider shirts and a high end Couture fashion line. Cavalliera by Viktoria quickly become the ambassador of elegance and irresistible femininity in the Hungarian equestrian life. Now Cavalliera manufactures and sells its own collection in over 40 countries across the world, as well as designs and manufactures garments for five European name brands. Viktoria won the ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ title in 2014, and the Forbes magazine published an interview with her in 2016.
How did the Cavalliera brand get so far? With the help of the same amount and quality of work and sacrifices that Viktoria learned from being a professional rider.
Women want to represent elegance and femininity in all situations, regardless their age, job or economical resources. That is why Cavalliera provides lively and feminine equestrian clothing from already three-year-old girls to adults for a price that you will appreciate and quality that you will love.
It’s time to join our family and be the best version of you.
