Hand-crafted wedding dresses in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Dimity produces custom, made-to-measure bridal gowns for discerning brides around the world from our studio in Randburg, Johannesburg, South Africa. We create from scratch, starting by taking the bride's measurements, discussing ideas and looking at appropriate silhouettes the bride may have in mind. We then produce a custom sketch of how the wedding dress will look, before deciding on fabrics and moving on to producing the one-of-a-kind dream dress.
Our EcoBride range employs principles such as zero waste and ethical fashion and can use organic natural fibres, peace silk and recycled synthetic materials and also natural dyeing techniques. We can even incorporate heritage fabrics from the mother of the bride's own wedding dress to add that extra touch of love and nostalgia.
