Here are two designers we are obsessed with that we suggest you check out;
Sober Design House
The essence of urban chic, Sober Design House was launched by Tshepo Mafokwane, who discovered she was incapable of accepting both the conformity and mediocrity she found surrounding her. Her design signature speaks a language of bold, ultra-feminine shapes, with tailored shoulders and waists, which are contrasted with unexpected touches of softness and sparkle. The Tshwane University of Technology graduate boldly celebrates all women and their tremendous ability to conquer anything.
JudithAtelier is a high-end ladieswear and couture designer label in South Africa, founded by designer Judith Smit in 2014 and situated between the Ceres Mountains in the Western Cape. As a young upcoming designer, the label aims to create, newly inspired and unique quality garments dressing strong, confident women. The label enhances femininity, with special attention given to fabric and embellishment choices, the female form and specific details the ‘Epitome of Female Sophistication'. "I believe each and every one of our clients, is different and beautiful in their own way and I'd like them to identify themselves with being expressive, strong and confident", remarks Judith. “Once they put on a Judith Atelier garment, they'll be celebrating the beauty of the inner creative self without boundaries”.
