Kobus Dippenaar is a South African born fashion designer renowned for complimenting and enhancing his clients’ best features in elegant, modern and sophisticated ways. He is best known for his couture evening and bridal gowns that exhibit a strong play between masculinity and femininity, structure and fluidity.

Kobus will custom design a gown that accentuates your style and frame, keeping all factors in mind. ‘I’m a stylist at heart,’ he says. ‘I see the big picture – everything. I see the make-up, the hair, the mood, the tone, the fabric, the dress, the shoes. It must all work together.’ Indeed, he will ensure everything fits together effortlessly.

His studio is located in Cape Town, however his talent and reputation have attracted women from across the world to seek his workmanship; a major crowd-puller at European and South African runway shows. After designing exclusively for the private market for 25 years, Dippenaar launched his Anna Georgina wedding gown range in 2012.

Full skirts contrast with boning and corsetry, while Swarovski elements twinkle against figure-defining lines. His creations draw on the linear textures of silk dupoin, 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.
