The design aesthetic of Alia Bastamam brings a cool, comfortable and neoteric up-to-date culture into the glamorous idea of fashion. And it always best suits what women want. Drifting through a wanderlust composed of luscious, wispy movements of soft fabric, sophisticated risqué for subtle sex appeal, and sharp cuts and fine tailoring for a substantial dash of class.
The Raffles Design School (KL, Malaysia) graduate is inspired by unequivocal beauty at first sight; what looks best on a woman. She carefully reflects the charmed classic works of Valentino Garavani and Roy Halston, the edged contemporary tones of Haider Ackermann, as well as the playful nonchalance of Stella McCartney and Alber Elbaz.
“I only make clothes that I would wear.” –Alia Bastamam
Alia keeps a keen eye on fashion trends to keep inspired by new movements. But designing garments that lasts through the times is an understanding of style. It isn’t the style that screams for attention; it is a style that silently clicks by in high heels, making heads turn. Alia has made it essential that her designs are enduring and never out of style.
With a fair share of Alia Bastamam dresses on the local red carpet as well as fashion events, Alia Bastamam girls do it differently. With a more chic and fashion-minded approach, celebrities and socialites who have strutted in Alia’s creations include Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 Carey Ng, Tengku Chanela Jamidah, Miss World Malaysia 2009 Thanuja Ananthan and Nabila Huda, the daughter of Malaysian Rock God, Amy Search.
In all that glitter, there is always an injection of collected modernity for the fashion forward woman of today: respectable, individualistic, bold, smart, fashionably aware and womanly.
