MEET THE TEAM
You've read About the Designer, now meet the team who make the magic happen aka. The Fairy Godmothers, aka. The Dream Team, aka. This-would-not-be-possible-without-them.
Every single dress that is made will go through two pairs of hands that ensure fabric is cut correctly, seams are neatly pressed, lace is meticulously moulded and buttons are carefully placed and sewn. All by hand.
Mellissa and Philzain will pop into fittings and double check to make sure they know exactly what our brides want.
Maya is our design studio manager, she will be your first point of contact and help you in setting up an appointment to see us!
She has the mammoth task of managing us all in the office and she'll check in with brides, send reminders and most importantly cheer you on during fittings because as she said "I'm in love with romance!"
So, when you mail us, feel free to say Hi Maya!!
Mellissa's love for sewing didn't start at college when she studied at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, it started early on when her grandmother taught her how to bead evening dresses.
Today she applies the wisdom from her grandmother teachings with modern sewing techniques to sew the endless meters of tulle on ballgowns or adjust a slight bust dart on exquisite silk bodices.
PHILZAIN DE VILLIERS
Philzain's hands are responsible for the intricately beaded details and finishing on all our dresses.
If there is a custom beaded bodice then Philzain placed and sewed every single bead with precision, if lace needs to seamlessly overlap in order to look like it was woven to the shape of the figure then Philzain is the one who will applique every tiny leaf to flow into one another.
