Aleem Yusuf’s ‘Obsession’ collection is fashion’s latest ‘Obsession’ for this upcoming Spring and Summer displaying the essence of transparent fragility, originality, and beauty. Each piece is presented with careful details and conveys the idea of individuality favorably. Throughout the collection, the audience is given a sophisticated and quintessential look of the dainty yet strong woman today by using different techniques on each fabric and drawing inspiration from the feminine form.
Australian native Aleem Yusuf showcases ‘Obsession’ with a touch of traditional couture artisanship by applying elegant and intricate details to every cut, drapery, fabric, and stitch. Yusuf creates a beautiful silhouette that embodies the idea of self-empowerment and fierceness through the elements of fabric control and drapery that molds the figure’s body exquisitely. Layer by layer, piece by piece, Yusuf constructs a continuous theme of individual beauty. Just like a rose, ‘Obsession’ exhibits the fragile and delicate side of a woman, while also incorporating her true inner strength in every individual piece that is presented. While the collection symbolizes the innate feature of fragility, it is complemented by the growing element of self-confidence and strength a woman has throughout her life. The attention towards preciseness and detail illustrates how carefully thought out each piece was in the making of the collection and overall embodies the concept of sheer strength effortlessly. These complex details enrich the senses by creating an enchanting aura through the duration of the show, leaving the audience with an unforgettable fashion experience.
Well-known for paying homage to Melbourne at the beginning of each show, Yusuf integrated a small piece of home to Paris. He combined Melbourne black, a compelling color worn by Melburnians, into this collection along with a sheer drapery making it a sophisticated yet alluring garment. This gown serves as a significant memento for Yusuf and Melbourne and additionally gives a slight close-up of Yusuf’s cultural background while also portraying a small portion of Melbourne fashion. This deep and cultivating shade will ultimately give you a first glance at what it means to have an ‘Obsession’.
