For Ali, the sparkle of crystals evokes the memories of shopping with his mother for custom couture.
As a result, crystals have been a huge part of the designs he has created so far. This is profoundly evident in his current collection. In order to create the unique looks based on couture traditions, Ali combines the heavy details of couture clothes with simple silhouettes. Consisting of structured shapes that vary from fitted to fluid, Ali’s collection is created by combining present day silhouettes with crystals and custom beading. The collection also consists of accessories including; purses, sunglasses, belts, and chokers.
