Designed by Aaliah Allies
This collection consisted of various one-of’s, as is customary of a bespoke service, which offered by A Sense of Style.
A/W17 had a luxe inspired look containing the classic glamorous black in various fabric textures such as velvet, lace, mesh and chiffon. Contrasting garment tones to the collection consisted of emerald, ruby and agate.
Silhouettes contained a certain dramatic appeal of a modest nature consisting of various kaftan, kimono and maxi dresses. These are beautifully styled with high waisted skirts or cigar pants in certain looks, creating a flattering effect due to its juxtaposition of oversize and fitted shape.
However, probably the most quintessential element of this Cape Town brand, highlighting the luxury of bespoke designerwear, is the handbeaded applique on certain garments. No two garments are beaded with exactly the same detail and furthermore, clients have the option of foregoing these trims.
Aaliah Allies operates from her Home Studio on an appointment basis. Follow @asenseofstylesa on instagram for the complete collection.
