On Melbourne Cup I had the honour of wearing a custom-made Couture dress by AY Couture. The Melbourne based designer and I worked together on this very special project, creating a dress that not only made me feel like a princess but made me look the part too.
Aleem is the mastermind behind this beautiful gown, he created this dress in under three weeks, with only three fittings. It was amazing to see him in action whilst creating and coming up with ideas together. The dress style evolved as we discussed at each fitting about different ideas. The whole experience was phenomenal to be part of and one I'll never forget.
I was also styled by the beautiful Coco Louise from itscocolouise to find the added extras such as the crown, shoes and earrings.
If you're ever looking to have a custom-made dress made for a special occasion, Aleem creates made-to-measure dresses for brides-to-be, bridesmaids, mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom.
