The Kat van Duinen practical magic gown collection was born from a much-needed call for frivolity and almost childlike yearning for imaginary escapism.
Finding the sense of magic in everyday world was always fashion’s duty.
The Kat van Duinen voluminous dresses in different tule weights, colours and lengths aren’t just red carpet ready… Feel free to wear them to any mundane tasks, grocery stores or sipping tea in your garden.
These are made for those who seek the life a tad less ordinary.
A labour of love, every piece is produced with painstaking care, showcasing the skill of South African workmanship. Kat keeps her promise that every item is proudly made in South Africa. Wherever possible, and as much as availability and quality allow, Kat van Duinen endeavours to source materials and skills within South Africa.
“We must re-establish a pride in skills that are not only worth preserving, but help the planet a little. I am passionate about objects made by human hands. A product is luxe when it is handmade, tailored for few. Because today luxury involves exclusiveness – and not because it is addressed to few people, but because it’s special instead.” ~ Kat van Duinen
