The Designer


My Family is my LIFE
I LOVE most my husband and our son
I NEED to create every day
The African bush is my ESCAPE
My greatest STRENGTH is knowing who I am
Chocolate cake is my biggest WEAKNESS
It is a CHALLENGE to get through the morning without a cup of good coffee
I find INSPIRATION all around me
My DREAMS are far too big to contain
I BELIEVE everything is possible

Designing is my is what I do best.

The final product left my photographer saying “wedding of the season based on that dress”. I stole the show for being in it. The fit and quality were impeccable, the blog Style me Pretty quotes it as “the bride’s sleek, classic, unadorned gown made of white denim fits the aesthetic almost as perfectly as it fits her figure”.
‘Every bride should have a Kristin’.

“As little girls we dream about the beautiful dress we would like to wear on our big day. Kristin is the magic wand that makes that dress a reality - with added flair and femininity. She has a heart of gold and an exceptional talent. She is always passionate and really walked the extra mile for me and my bridal party. It rarely happens that a designer really listens to your needs & ideas. Kris is a true gem!”
