As a continuation of our love affair with local designer Alvin Fernandez' label Ae'lkemi, we were delighted to get a sneak preview of his SS12/13 collection titled: Lumière, which is to be shown tomorrow night at PFF.
The Lumière collection features garments that all have a sheen to them, ranging from delicate silks to a scuba-like material. The iconic Ae'lkemi evening gowns have also been given a sporty angle, subconsciously channeling this season's big trend, but without looking like anything else on the market.
One of our favourite things about Ae'lkemi is that you could be anything from 16 to 116 and still look good in the designs. Ae'lkemi prides itself on its ability to dress not only a bride, but the whole bridal party and the mother of the bride!
Add to this the quality workmanship (see the detail above!) & the amazing personal service you receive from the designer himself, and you have a label that we could not rave more about.
Check back after tomorrow night to see photos of the runway show.
Special thanks to Alvin for showing us his masterpieces!
