I am a Cape Town based designer and have channelled my passion for design into the world of bridal and evening gowns. I work from my Studio in Long Street, Cape Town. I create luxury gowns that evoke drama and glamour of past eras whilst still maintaining a modern edge.
I have been designing as long as I can remember. At the age of 13, I wrote myself a letter and detailed exactly what I wanted to be when I grow up and everything I wanted to achieve. On that list was that I wanted to be a designer. After finishing my studies in 1993, I moved to France where I studied French.
I returned to South Africa in 1996 and moved to Cape Town where I have gained invaluable experience as a designer. It was my own marriage in 2002 that ultimately inspired me to start my own couture label and to specialise in bridal couture.
My work not only reflects my love for design but also celebrates the sensuality, romance and spirit of women. I absolutely love seeing how my designs make my bride glow, how she admires herself, and how she doesn’t want to take her special gown off. It’s my job to make her look unbelievably beautiful and I love doing it.
My designs are known for their superior fit with a modern vintage touch. Every gown is hand-made and lovingly crafted by an in-house team of seamstresses and beaders who share in my culture. We strive for exceptional quality in product and service.
In addition to my bespoke design service, I offer a range of unique, ready-to-wear bridal gowns, available for purchase or hire. Clients have the opportunity to try on various styles to see what best suits their figure and personality. All clients are assured of my personal attention throughout the process, and can always look forward to a warm welcome and a relaxed studio environment.
