Cape Town Wedding Dresses
Known for high fashion couture, South African designer Kobus Dippenaar launched the Anna Georgina bridal range in 2012. He is one of South Africa’s most loved and established fashion designers with over 30 years under his belt. Kobus was best known for his couture evening and bridal gowns, until Anna Georgina.
As a tribute to his mother, the collection grew out of Dippenaar’s desire to take haute couture fashion and make it more accessible. Much of haute couture isn’t wearable, and that’s what Dippenaar sought to change. Anna Georgina showcases the very best of Dippenaar’s runway designs with garment construction that makes each gown fit perfectly.
The Anna Georgina collections explore the play between masculinity and femininity, between structure and fluidity. Full skirts contrast with boning and corsetry, while Swarovski elements twinkle against figure defining lines. The creations draw on the linear textures of silk dupoin, the old-world magic of lace, the sensuousness of silk charmeuse and the lightness of tulle. Vogue colours include blush, pale pinks, ivory and gold.
Anna Georgina gowns are made to measure and are available from selected boutiques in South Africa and abroad.
