Crush of the Day: Paolo Sebastian Couture Spring/Summer 2015
The young designer Paul Vasileff launched his first collection in 2007 at the age of 17. A perfectionist with a penchant for classic beauty, the Adelaide designer has impressed the industry with his maturity and scope of his creative vision.
A firm favourite on both the runway and red carpet, Paolo Sebastian specialises in custom-made couture tailored to accentuate the beauty of the individual. Classic designs reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour exude timeless elegance, paired with a contemporary edge. Often featuring impeccably tailored boning and the tiniest of hand sewn floral appliques, Paolo Sebastian creations encapsulate both the boldness of high fashion and the delicate innocence of beauty.
Handmade in South Australia, each piece is a triumph of custom-made craftsmanship. Opulent silks, French lace and romantic silhouettes are key features of Paolo Sebastian creations, often featuring delicate hand beading.
