"Aexclusive is a fashion forward brand that understands what women want to feel"
- Edward, 2nd Generation Fashion Designer
"You don't have to be a runway model to feel our dresses."
-Arkady, Fashion Designer
Aexclusive by Arkady makes its American debut with a rich collection of dresses and suits. Marrying European tradition with a contemporary sensibility, Arkady presents in Aexclusive a full bodied collection that is both elegant and wearable.
Arkady's clothes are sensual and sophisticated, never tricky or so edgy, they go over the customers head. Superb detailing and luxurious embellishment differentiate Aexclusive from its competitors. These glamorous looks echo European collections without their designer price points.
Arkady's vision was formed in Russia where he was a designer and master craftsman. Born into a family of designers, his father headed the renowned state institute of fashion in Odessa. As a student Arkady was top among his peers. Receiving awards and accolades, he was signed out by the Russian government and supported in the opening of his own atelier. When Gorbachev allowed people to travel and leave the country, he seized his moment and left for New York. Immediately he enrolled at FIT so that he could better translate his vast experience and education in fabrics and pattern making to the American market. His sophisticated taste and the enormity of his inventiveness were quickly rewarded by Donna Karen for whom he worked for eight years.
Arkady's vision is one of refined fashion, embellishing and adding to his clothes and heightened sense of femininity. The result: a collection that embraces the event-filled lives of todays women.
