Elze-Mari’s wedding gown was a beautiful fusion between simplicity, elegance and architectural structure. We used a translucent delicate embroidery decorated with shimmering flat sequin in combination with structured tulle and Duchess satin to create a sheer and light, yet sculptural bell silhouette. Besides the silhouette we added an abstract bow detail for interest and drama. We also had the privilege of creating both the Mother-of-the-bride and Maid-of-honor ensembles.
Isn’t this red carpet evening gown we designed for the beautiful Carol Van Der Linde, for her husband’s 50th Birthday celebration, just sensational? We found this exquisite embroidery at one of our suppliers and then created this uncomplicated-cut evening gown. The balance is just next level – the simplicity of the cut and the elaborate detailing are a match made in couture heaven!
We loved creating this chic jumpsuit for Marilize for last year’s PINK POLO at Val De Vie Estate. Our main objective was to keep to simplicity, elegance with a hint of glamour in a mix of satin back crepe, eqyptian cotton and linen. This ensemble was sheer perfection and suited the event theme – AUTHENTIC POLO very well, whilst still pushing fashion boundaries.
We love for illusion necklines, floating applique and 3d flower embellishments! Carine’s one-of-a-kind gown was nothing short of amazing!

We used a luxurious Duchess satin and various 3D floral embroideries to create a figure fitting trumpet-silhouette base gown with illusion neckline. For DRAMA we added a multiple layered Italian tulle overskirt with floral scatters! ❤️
For Theresa’s wedding gown we opted for simplicity, elegance with a hint of glamour in a mix of winter white and ivory.

Marcile was one of our very first international brides. She was born and raised in South Africa and later immigrated to Australia where she has been living for the passed 12 years. She and David had the wonderful idea of getting married in the Western Cape Winelands at Boschendal Estate and we had the privilege to create her gown. The combination of tan blush linings layered with cream and ivory laces with delicate beading were ideal for a bride that wanted a dress that is classic, yet romantic. The bodice gradually faded into a voluminous tulle skirt section of multiple layers of Italian tulle. This wedding gown is a true reflection of our design aesthetic.
