Inspired by same sex weddings.
Minus Y is designed to provide empowerment and confidence through beautifully tailored suits and alternative pieces.
Minus Y challenges the gender stereotypical fashion of wedding attire.
We offer more than clothing.
We offer an experience.
Minus Y want you to have that special moment, where you see each other for the first time on your wedding day, full of love, excitement and of course, wearing the perfect outfits.
We specialise in styling brides outfits together so you both look amazing side by side. All of our pieces are made to order and therefore can be altered in any way.
The aesthetics’ of the brand was designed keeping in mind how the wearer wants to feel, who they are and always keeping it authentic. The company is devoted to love and equality, keeping the garments locally made in Melbourne and challenging the status quo of innovative design.
Each piece is designed, patterned and made locally in Melbourne, the collection is made from the finest silks and embellished with an eclectic mixture of classic bridal laces and tulle with tough shoulder pads, buttons and leather. The suit fits in a genderless approach, removing darts and certain lines that give women’s suit fragility. These pieces combined with structured corsets, draped necklines and inspiring gowns display a power, pride and romance for a person to feel authentically themselves.
Elissa Koutsotheodoros, the founder and managing director of Minus Y created the brand and collection for same sex marriages, for the individual who doesn’t want to follow tradition, for the creative professional and the person who wants to stand out.
Each piece is hand finished and a limited edition design.
