The female body is glorious in all her many forms and Australian label Alisha MARAKI is a textural celebration of each and every one.
racing ‘The Next Gen’ runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival, founder Alisha Yates designs to flatter bodies with exaggerated proportions. Each garment that wanders the street is only one of fifty and is hand marked with its unique make number to truly be something special worn again and again. With nearly a decade of experience in the fashion industry under her designer belt, Yates has noticed a lack of special occasion wear that compliments all women. Inspired by the hundreds of female figures she has fitted in her work as well as her own body proportions, she aims to eliminate this shortfall by utilising her in-depth knowledge of the female form to cater to the often overlooked fuller bust niche.
From the slender framed woman with wide hips to the fuller busted woman with the small waist, Alisha MARAKI is inclusive fashion that flatters the natural shape of a woman’s silhouette regardless of body ratio. The unique take on the traditional runway sizing has pieces available from sizes 8 through to 18 that are reformed by the brand’s innovative ‘busty’ sizing range. Each exclusive garment is hand marked by Yates and designed to be treasured for its comfort and quality so it can be worn to catch appreciative glances. Alisha MARAKI will be officially launching at the Mercedez-Benz Fashion Festival’s ‘Next Gen’ show on August 28 – a celebration of the fresh, creative and avant-garde artistry that is set to be the future of fashion.
