About J. Mendel:
J. Mendel, a fifth-generation French atelier, has evolved into a global luxury fashion house under the auspices of creative director Gilles Mendel. Known for combining the highest quality materials and impeccable craftsmanship with a modern, award-winning design sensibility, Gilles Mendel evolved the company from a luxury fur atelier to a fully-fledged fashion house with the launch of ready-to-wear in 2002. Setting J. Mendel apart from other U.S. based brands, the company maintains two ateliers in the heart of New York City, where the fur, ready-to-wear, bridal and couture creations are produced. Gilles Mendel’s signature luxe-femininity and effortless elegance has made the house of J. Mendel a red-carpet favorite among international royalty and Hollywood stars alike. His collections are carried at the finest stores across the globe.
About Anna Georgina:
DESIGNER VISIT & TRUNK SHOW MARCH 31st!
Sensual and cosmopolitan, Anna Georgina gowns are designed for the self-possessed, confident woman. Known for high fashion couture, South African designer Kobus Dippenaar launched the Anna Georgina bridal range in 2012 to an international audience in London. One of South Africa’s most loved and established fashion designers, Kobus was best known for his couture evening and bridal gowns – until Anna Georgina. A tribute to his mother, the collection grew out of Kobus’ desire to take haute couture fashion and make it more accessible. Much of haute couture isn’t wearable, and that was what Kobus sought to change. Anna Georgina showcases the very best of Kobus’ 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 dupoini, 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, nude and champagne.
