A bit About Who We Are

Marisela Veludo is a company based in Lisbon, Portugal before then, was based in South Africa known as Passion4Fashion. Founded by Marisela Veludo in 2003. At first it was a part time business which grew into a more demanding business and now Marisela runs her business full time with her fiance Brad Johnson by her side. Brad heads up marketing, PR and admin.

Marisela was brought up in Madeira and later South Africa watching her mother sew daily. 

Marisela soon realized that she had a keen eye for creative designs. She started drawing her own designs for herself, her sisters and friends. She would later give these designs to her mother who would then sew them for her. 

In time Marisela started sewing her own clothes and since then she hasn’t stopped. 

Marisela has found that most clients seem very nervous about having items designed and not coming out the way they expect it due to going to the wrong person such as a seamstress or people who claim to be dress makers but aren’t. 

But;

We concentrate on the full package.  From start to finish. With the correct measurements to fabric samples. All the way to your final fitting and collection of your dress. Happy clients all the way. (See our testimonials)

Marisela Veludo qualified for the Soweto Fashion Week and partook twice in May 2013. 

Marisela Veludo also designed all the bridesmaids dresses for the Wittstock wedding. The Wittstocks are related to the English Royal Family. Marisela also designed several dresses for guests of the same wedding. 

Passion4Fashion has been on SABC1 on the Kids News & Current Events TV Show in April 2013.

Several of Marisela’s prom dress clients have won best dressed over the years.

Marisela’s design of the popular Midnight Dress was chosen to be on the cover of a South African talent magazine launch.

THE GREATEST REWARD IN THIS, IS TO SEE THE CLIENTS REACTION TO THE END RESULT. I LOVE SEEING THE PURE SMILES OF JOY AND SURPRISE. I LOVE MAKING MY LADIES FEEL SPECIAL AND BEAUTIFUL, IN WHAT THEY ARE WEARING... ALWAYS.
