Since its arrival in 2020, Sydney fashion label Alémais has endeavoured to cultivate a spirit of the wildly nomadic and adventurous, keeping an eye to the future, whilst leaving a window ajar to the artisanal practices of the past.
Artist collaboration plays an integral part of the design process – with much of the work paying homage to the art movements that were instrumental in shaping, rousing and challenging our modern world.
Turning a blind eye toward the formalism and rigidity of everyday dress, here the free-flowing fluidity of explorative shapes and artful proportions takes centre stage; with a lightweight form that is in equal parts both thoughtful and playful.

Rubi is creating a new way of manufacturing that exists in harmony with the planet. Inspired by how trees grow, the company uses biochemical processes powered by enzymes to turn industrial CO₂ emissions into drop-in cellulose pulp to replace trees as an input in man-made cellulosic fibers (MMCFs) and textiles. Rubi was founded by two twin sisters and scientists, Neeka Mashouf and Leila Mashouf, who grew up fascinated by nature, and ultimately teamed in 2021 to re-invent global supply chains with a proprietary biomanufacturing technology that is inherently planet positive.
