Hand-crafted custom-designed couture gowns – inspired by the intrinsic strength and subtlety of women, complementing their self-expression and individuality – each gown as unique and beautiful as the woman wearing it.
Exploring the Haute Couture techniques of The Golden Age of Couture.
Obsession with designing and sewing beautiful dresses is inherent in Aleem and his creative passion flourished from an early age. His initial learning was from his late grand-aunt who was a dress-maker.
As this passion gained momentum, after completing fashion and couture studies, followed by invaluable experience in the couture industry he launched his eponymous Melbourne based label.
He is inspired by the contrasts of nature, surrounding environment and bygone eras. An experience, texture, vision or conversation may translate into a creative emotional response that results into the next piece or collection of intricate wearable art, composed of classic traditional techniques juxtaposed with contemporary design elements.
Being passionate about custom-designing wedding dresses, red carpet, special occasion and stage costumes; his design process is an emotional journey and the client he works with is a part of that journey, which is continuously evolving.
All pieces are designed and handcrafted in our atelier in Melbourne, Australia.
