Alquema, fashion for extraordinary women. Alquema is a proudly Australian owned women’s clothing brand based in beautiful Sydney.
Founder Virginia Rouse has for decades traveled the world in search for continuous inspiration, not only for fashion, but in life.
A handcrafted, artistic brand at our core, not simply in the clothing we design, fabrics we choose and the pleating we create but in the women we are. We are constantly inspired by the extraordinary women in our lives from family and friends to icons past and present. Alquema women are those who cross continents and cultures, mold us, embolden us and rejuvenate us.
We believe that fashion is part of the road to self discovery and self expression and we are honored to be a part of that journey. As the great Yves Saint Laurent once said, “what is important in a dress is the woman who’s wearing it.”
