Express Yourself Elegantly

Elegant dresses

A well fitted and constructed dress can give you the elegant look desired. An elegant dress is worn at several formal events such as matric farewells, ceremonies, formal evening occasions and weddings. 

To have the perfect elegant appeal, take into consideration the amount of skin that is being exposed. 

  • Consider Neckline Design
  • Consider Slit Height
  • Consider The Fit
  • Consider The Hemline
Exclusivity At Its Best

A mermaid dress is a style of evening gown that fits closely to the body throughout the torso and hips then opens up at the knees and flares to the floor.

Mermaids can be designed with a choice of a soft flare out effect, structured or with a  full volume effect.

The mermaid dress can be made in silk, satin, taffeta or elasticated fabrics.

This dress shape is popular for formal events such as wedding dresses, proms and red carpet events. Extremely popular in South Africa for matric farewell dresses.

  • Soft And Flared
  • Structured
  • Full Effect
  • Classy & Glamorous
  • Sexy & Fitted
  • Diverse Finishes
There Is A Princess Inside All Of Us

princess dresses

A princess fit dress is great to enhance the waist line. Usually done in panels to shape the upper body. 

From the waist, the dress flares out, creating a classy look. It can be worn just with a flare, or with added volume. A princess dress is great for a formal event such as your matric dance.

The beauty about the princess fit is that it can be a simple dress or highly dramatised to give it a more glamorous evening dress look.

It can easily be worn as a ballgown dress by adding a lot of volume and flare or an underskirt.

  • Princess Fit
  • Enhances Waistline
  • Versatile
  • Great For Plus Size
  • Classy & Elegant
  • Dramatic Ball Gown
