An expression of freedom combining culture and design to bring a new breath of life to fashion

A Pret-A-Couture fashion brand inspired by the life-altering capabilities of circumstance and the love story of Sir Thomas Maitland and Lady Lavinia of Sri Lanka. Avastavé aims to capture the wildfire of the human spirit through delicately crafted Pret-A-Couture eveningwear made for the outcasts, rebels and dreamers among us. 

Each Avastavé garment is inspired by a memory of the characters in our brand story, told in chapter form across our social media. Our Pret-A-Couture is custom-made in the finest textiles, with delicately crafted handmade details such a braided chiffon, employing the talent of Dubai based artisans.

In order to ensure exclusivity for Avastavé clients, we do not replicate our products. Each style is available only in UK sizes 8, 10 & 12.
