“Stage 9 Secrets is one of the best kept fashion secrets among professionals and fashionistas; a growing online boutique specializing in evening wear, red carpet attire, gowns for special events, weddings, prom dress, stage dresses, performance attire, and statement pieces.”

With many years in the music industry, award winning lyricist and singer-songwriter Alexa Ray noticed a large need for branding solutions for independent artists and young professionals. “As someone who needed to find looks that were in line with my brand and expressed who I was, it was becoming increasingly hard to find performance gowns and bold styles for photoshoots that weren’t thousands of dollars. Branding is just as important as the talent and art one creates. In my own experience I was constantly met with the challenge of exclusivity within the industry and a lack of support or services for independent artists. Funneling everything I would have wanted as a young artist into the foundation of the company, I built a platform where the support of artists and professionals are the center of the brand with a unique focus to offer statement pieces that celebrate one’s unique personality”.  Thus, Stage 9 Secrets was born.

Alexa brings over 10 years of industry knowledge to her boutique. Over the past two years Alexa has carefully hand-picked designers from around the world to provide her customers with bold styles, statement must haves and chic trends that ship across the USA, Canada, UK and Australia.

Echoing her goal to support the arts, in addition to affordable luxury statement pieces the site offers additional resources for young professionals to learn, connect and grow. Stage 9 Secrets offers industry blogs, a directory to connect with a community of other professionals, affiliate opportunities as well as a spotlight uplifting artists, creators, and young entrepreneurs. “Though our blogs, affiliate programs and a directory of recommended industry services, we aim to offer additional resources to connect and empower both individuals and young professionals in their career. As we continue to grow our vision, we aim to expand what we offer both in services and product.” 

Launching her company at the start of the pandemic, tenacious is just one word among a long list to describe Alexa Ray. “Many new businesses face challenges when first starting out and our experience was no different, particularly while navigating the pandemic. Early on our company faced many obstacles that forced us to learn essential skills such as being adaptive and thinking outside the box for solutions. As a business owner I feel 90% of my day to day is problem solving as well as and an infinite willingness to learn. These lows make the peaks of success that much more meaningful”

While there have been many challenges starting up, Alexa says seeing her customers dressed to the nines and featured in editorials with their gowns is extremely rewarding and an affirmation that she’s accomplishing what she set out to do.

Since launching, Stage IX Secrets has already been featured in Time Square, Know Magazine, Elcair, Opium, Ellements Magazine and dressed talent such as Le Divas, Tina Guo, Jennifer Thomas and Kayla Methven just to name a few.
