Basil Soda‘s journey began with a specialization in architecture which lead him back to his first love; Fashion Design. Throughout the years and whatever the country, Basil Soda has always felt at liberty to create. In the year 2000 he decided to embark on his own and establish his Fashion House. His unique expertise in design and construction has allowed him to master the perfect cut and fit. From his new sanctuary, Basil Soda talks openly of his love of architecture; a favorite subject and constant source of inspiration, from which he has borrowed fine-cut lines, a unity of pace and purity of volume. An aesthetic based on the juxtaposition of two extremes; strength and fragility. Always playing on the duality of a woman; hopelessly romantic yet mysteriously dark.

The red carpet has created a great outlet to showcase Mr. Soda’s work to a greater audience. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Emily Blunt, Marion Cotillard, Morena Baccarrin, and many more gracing award seasons with their one of a kind Basil Soda creations.

Alongside his Couture line, his Ready-to-Wear collection was launched in 2010. Opening doors for a new market to acknowledge the Basil Soda aesthetic. With time it has gained international recognition and perseverance, providing women the ultimate Couture touch in a more accessible way. Basil Soda RTW can be found in cities all over the world, from New York, Washington, London, Cannes, Moscow, Dubai, Beirut, all the way to Taiwan. Plans of expansion are in the workings for the house of Basil Soda, and will be revealed in the near future.

Basil Soda believes in providing a certain fantasy for each woman as an escape from the reality of everyday life. Constructing each silhouette directly on the mannequin, to achieve a unique touch for each and every dress. He feels at home watching over every single creation being pieced together making sure each garment gets the right amount of attention…Perfectionism is an art.
