Alquema

"An artistic handcrafted brand, not simply in the styles we design nor the pleating we create, but in the women we are"

Alquema is a proudly Australian owned women’s clothing brand based in Sydney.
The founder Virginia Rouse has for decades traveled the world searching  for  inspiration, not only for fashion, but in life.
Starting as a photographer on film sets, Virginia developed her eye for detail, structure and textures. 
On her travels to Japan in the 90’s Virginia was introduced to the art of Shibori.
She fell in love with the movement and textural life of this ancient Japanese craft and has continued to experiment with form and composition, forever expanding and growing in the expedition of refinement. 
A handcrafted, artistic brand Alquema was the result
As the great Yves Saint Laurent once said, “what is important in a dress is the woman who’s wearing it.”
