Fashion Designer and AEIOU Ambassador
Alex Perry has been supporting AEIOU Foundation for nearly a decade, and he says his relationship with AEIOU is one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences of his career. He has visited centres to meet children and participate in learning centres, and supported the organisation through a number of fundraising and event initiatives.
He says: “My life revolves around communication... communication of thoughts, ideas and love. Communication is the most amazing gift and I take it for granted, but imagine life without it? I imagine it would be lonely. That’s why it’s so important that we support children with autism.”
Alex Perry is Australia's premier couturier, and has added a new level of glamour to the Australian fashion industry with his breathtaking gowns. The designer 'du jour' for celebrity red carpet dressing and high society weddings, Alex Perry is in a league of his own.
