With her diverse experiences, Alnea Farahbella, the designer of Toit Volant, is a dressmaker, a fashion designer, a pattern-maker, a sewer and a woman in love with fashion.

The designer loves waking up to dress up, to explore in bodacious styles while riding motorbikes. Alnea enjoys walking with her dog in outlandish silhouettes to feel refresh. She dresses up to design, to create patterns, to sew and to work with the makers at the factories. Alnea maintains a sense of humor and lightheartedness in her everyday life happenings. Most importantly she is passionately driven with the art and craft of designing and dress making.

With a decade of living overseas, the designer’s extensive fashion background includes years of teaching in prestigious fashion design programs; Pratt Institute New York, Parsons The New School as the MFA design studio manager and Raffles Institute Asia. Her travels and professional experiences gave the designer an honest realistic view into the world of fashion and manufacturing.

The time of living overseas, exposure to luxury brands development, walking for hours in fabric markets provided an education to the reality of excess textiles, mass production, unconscionable sample productions caused by nature and extreme demands of fashion.

In 2013, the designer committed to establish a brand that supports small business owners, responsible sourcing of textiles and materials, limited mindful quantities, work hands on with small size fair labor factories to maintain her pledge for sustainability.

Our company is dedicated to being personal, intimate with the craft of dress making without the luxury price tag, engage with the makers, with the woman wearing our designs, share the ideology of investing moderately in product consumption that has equal value to longevity, good quality and exclusivity. Our brand aims for loyalty and trust in our products.
