"You Don't understand... This is an Alia!!!"

Yes, I just quoted Cher from Clueless. She loved Mr. Alia's dress so much- she argued with a robber about it. Azzedine is making a huge comeback, and stores like Barneys and Liberty are taking a notice! Never to conform to the season's best, Alia has kept with his signature skintight dresses oozing with sex appeal. He might be just the man to thank for pushing out of the voluminous rut we have been stuck in for the past three seasons. Marios Schwab and Preen would be no where without this spandex loving designer.

Dubbed 'King of Cling', Azzedine Alaia is a perfectionist about cut, drape, and construction. His clothes are complex in structure - some garments contain up to 40 individual pieces linked together. His technique of sculpting and draping gives much respect to the body's shape and movement. He is said to be very much inspired by the most impressive fashion 'sculptor' of our time, Ms.Madeleine Vionnet, the great designer of the 1920s.
