our world

Celebrating your individuality, we add that extra magic to your dreams!

Our atelier is located within an urban warehouse in the heart of artistic Collingwood, where our clients experience the golden age of couture; that era between 1947-57 where luxury and elegance reigned.

We open the doors to a world of style and romance; exploring the passion for couture and glamorous creativity.

Shimmering sun rays through the window and soft lighting of vintage chandelier complement the soothing classical music composed by the great maestros.

Sipping on bittersweet liqueur or an aromatic tea, our clients will share their aspirations with the couturier and build upon their own style that complements their self-expression and individuality.

We are committed to you - celebrating your own personal style by crafting timeless, show-stopping couture pieces.

Custom-made for your individual style and vision, we connect and work with you from day one to understand how you want to look and feel on your special day.

As an ethically responsible, slow fashion brand, sustainable practices are at the heart of our business, empowering both our suppliers and customers. We’re passionate about building a better future for all by supporting other local businesses, upcoming talent and creative jobs.

Along with adhering to industry standards, we encourage conscious, constructive and sustainable usage by donating and repurposing all materials, reducing waste and giving our stock a new life.

Your experience with us is special every step of the way, and you can be assured that choosing us is influencing something bigger.

OUR PROCESS

COUTURE GOWNS

At Aleem Yusuf, celebrating your individuality is our top priority. We understand and respect your choices - connecting you with the perfect piece for your special day.

The couture process involves a series of appointments and a very personalised service.  The appointments include consultation, measurements, fittings and pickup of your gown.

Several fittings are done with your gown at various stages of development.  These stages include the toile (mock-up of your gown), actual fabric of your gown, lace and embellishments pinned on the gown and the final fitting closer to your occasion date.

Finally the pick up appointment of your gown, that is freshly steamed, pressed and beautifully fitted.

Working alongside you to enhance your personality, lifestyle and values sets us apart. That helps us to fully understand how you want to look and feel on your special day.

You will be heavily involved in the design process from day one, to combine your own style with your aspirations. The entire creative process is managed with you in the front of mind, from sketching and measuring, to custom pattern-making, construction, final fitting and finishing.

We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to provide many options and think outside the box. Our team is one hundred percent committed to you and your vision - empowering and supporting you to showcase your individuality.

Designing involves connecting with you, understanding your aspirations and style to develop a visualisation. We’ll then assist you to select the perfect fabrics, laces and embellishments - including colours, textures and patterns that enhance your style.

Once we ensure that both the design and fit are flawless, any final touches are completed, and you’re ready for your big day!
