Born in Saudi Arabia, Yousef Akbar came to Australia to study Logistics at the University of South Australia. But fashion was his calling and it was while completing his Master's at Sydney University that Yousef discovered one could study, and train for, a career in fashion. Thus, he embarked on a BA of Fashion at The Fashion Design Studio Sydney TAFE which he completed in 2016. He is fascinated by the interaction of the cloth and body. it is always about challenging convention in cutting and constructing of his garments while maintaining elegance and femininity. It is the voice he uses to deliver his message to the world, in the form of fabric worn on the body. For Yousef, it is not just about creating clothes, but also creating a narrative and a fantasy that evokes emotions of the wearer. When you wear one of his garments, you not only will be living his story, but you will be experiencing he’s personal research and quest for inspiration.
