Chrissy Teigan’s dress at the AMAs 2016 left little to the imagination. In fact it caused a social media storm as people were left wondering how it stayed in place.

This mystifying gown was creating by Australia-based designer Yousef Akbar. 

Yousef is taking the fashion world by storm and counts Kelly Osbourne, Jessica Mauboy and Kimbra as his clients.

Born in Saudi Arabia, Yousef Akbar came to Australia to study Logistics at the University of South Australia. But fashion was his calling and it was while completing his Master’s at Sydney University that Yousef discovered one could study, and train for, a career in fashion. Thus, he embarked on a Bachelor of Fashion at The Fashion Design Studio Sydney TAFE which he completed in 2016.

For Yousef, it is not just about creating clothes, but also creating a narrative and a fantasy that evokes emotions of the wearer.

I wonder what emotions this dress evoked for Chrissy!
