Why we love Aleem Yusuf
Aleem Yusuf has nurtured his passion for design and sewing from a young age, and continued this love through fashion and couture studies, and the creation of his own eponymous Melbourne-based label. For his designs, Aleem takes inspiration from nature, the surrounding environments and old-world style.
The atelier carries two lines: Aleem Yusuf Couture (AYC) and AY3, an off-the-rack demi-couture line inspired by steam-punk. But if you’re coveting a dress that shows off your individuality (read: a gown that no other bride will have), make for AYC. With the AYC line, choose from swatches of luxe fabrics and laces, embellishments and silks. And the best part? AYC also carries bridesmaid dresses and red carpet gowns, which means you can kit your leading ladies out and pick up your engagement party look with one easy stop.
