Get to know me and my background
From the moment I left school I had always been interested in studying Design.
I started off by completing a certificate in Graphic Design, which to this day still absolutely love and
dabble in quite a bit.
I realized I wanted to expand my creative passions and enrolled in Fashion school so made the move from Durbs to Joburg to pursue my Diploma in Fashion at
London International School Of Fashion (LISOF) which is based in Rosebank.
Once qualified, I returned to Durbs where I started off by launching my own Clothing label which was then known as Smooch. In 2010 our first store opened its doors. This was a major achievement. The brand began to develop and evolve and underwent a name change to Miss Pretty. The focus of this brand was on high fashion ladies wear which was stocked in many stores in and around Durban and Cape Town.
After a few years of running my label, I began making Matric Dance Dresses as well as Haute Couture evening dresses when requested.
One day, I was approached by a friend and asked to make her Wedding Dress. An opportunity which I jumped at. Fast forward a few years and it was finally my turn to get married. Of course I took up the challenge and decided to make my own Wedding Gown. Being a perfectionist when it comes to creating garments, I knew I needed to do this myself.
After completing my dress I realized that I had been bitten by the "bug". I had a newfound appreciation for detail and creating something exquisite.
This is where my love and passion for Wedding Dresses began. I now focus my energy and time on Bridal.
Not only do I create Bespoke Wedding Gowns but also make Bridesmaid Dresses, Flower Girl Dresses, Dressing Robes, Veils and Garters.
Creating your dream Wedding Gown is a beautiful Journey.
The process involves many exciting aspects
- Sourcing the perfect laces, trims and fabrics with your mom or your girls
- Getting your measurements taken and then starting the pattern process
- Your first fitting
- All fittings inbetween until
- The final garment is completed and handed over
I am with you every step of the way, accompanying you and providing you with guidance and assistance throughout. I am extremely approachable and am always very happy to help in whatever way I can.
I work closely with my brides to ensure that every detail is perfect and that you look sensational in your Bespoke
Let's start this journey together and create a once off masterpiece like no other!
