In this episode,  I speak with Paul Vasileff, the Creative Director and Founder of Paolo Sebastian,

Paul learnt to sew from the age of three. Initially taught by his Grandmother he completed his first evening dress at age eleven, Vasileff was fascinated by the inner workings and underpinnings of garments. With dreams of one day becoming a couture designer, he developed his skills by undertaking private lessons in pattern making and sewing from the age of thirteen.

After debuting his first collection at age seventeen to raving reviews from the public and press, Vasileff immediately began taking orders for private clients. Wanting to further his skills and knowledge he sought out an apprenticeship with an Italian tailor practising in traditional sartorial methods, where he would develop his knowledge and technique. Shortly after, he was granted a scholarship to the prestigious Europeo Instituto di Design in Milan, Italy, where he graduated with honours. 

After returning to Australia, Vasileff expanded the business to employ and train staff who were equally passionate about honouring the traditions of fine sewing.

In 2017, Vasileff was awarded ‘Young Australian of the Year’ for his work in founding Paolo Sebastian and its contribution to the Australian fashion industry. He was later awarded ‘Designer of The Year’ in the Prix de Marie Claire Awards. Vasileff continues to follow his dream, further developing the brand and business with an international clientele, annual showings in Paris, and adhering to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

During our dynamic conversations, Paul talks us through:

  • His lifetime commitment to couture excellence
  • The creative process and the talented team behind Paolo Sebastian
  • The joy of delivering a magical client experience 
  • Embracing AI, innovation and technology
