Steven Khalil is recognised as one of Australia’s leading designers specialising in red carpet and bridal gowns. His designs are renowned for their elegance and beauty, combining classical elements of bygone eras with a contemporary edge.
From a young age Steven was fascinated by fabrics, the fall and drape of material. After completing fashion studies at 19, he quickly began to gain recognition for the quality of his workmanship and eye for unique design. He rose rapidly through several bridal houses and was appointed Head Designer at just 22 years old. In 2003, he established his own fashion house in Paddington, Sydney.
Reviving elements of a classical era of European couture, Steven has developed an approach that is tailored to each individual. This is characterised by closely working with each client to develop a personalised couture experience and ultimately, their gown.
Clients may choose from ‘The House Collection’, any one of which can be customised according to preference, or create a breathtaking, one of a kind couture gown, using the world’s most superb silks, duchesse satins, silk organzas, wools and crepes, painstakingly hand beaded and embroidered by experts. “I love to work side by side with clients,” says Khalil, “The thrill is in being able to create a dress that will embody that special day for someone.”
