What We Do

Marilize Brand specializes in designing dresses that is unique to every woman and fits into any budget. Her designer dresses boasts beautiful patterns, artistic designs and textures.

Dresses include bridal and evening wear, bridesmaid dresses and an exciting rental maternity range specially designed for photoshoots. Marilize will design your dress according to what you want, while sharing her expertise in what will suit your personality, body type and skin colour.

How it works

step 1: Consultation Session

Two types of consultations are available. A design consultation is R 450.00 per hour and includes a dress design sketch. A standard consultation is R 300.00 per hour, but excludes a dress design sketch. During the consultation Marilize will share her expertise and help you select the perfect style, pattern, textures and colours for your body and personality type. Smaller budgets can be met with an option of design to rent, this will be at the designers discretion as some designs and fabrics are not suitable as a rental option. Consultations are payable in advance via EFT to secure your booking (banking details will be provided upon booking confirmation).

step 2: Production and Fabric Selection

Marilize will share her knowledge about different materials available for your dress design and budget as well as assist you to select the perfect material that will make your dress unique to who you are as an individual. Quality and price of fabrics are different and will effect the costing of the dress. Should clients purchase their own fabric, it should first be approved to ensure compatibility with the dress design.

If you are satisfied with the design and fabric selection, a 50% deposit payment is required for production to commence. An estimate time-frame will be given of when you can expect to have your first fitting.

step 3: Final Fitting

We believe that your dress should bring out the best you, that is why we commit to create not only a dress, but a memory that will last you a lifetime. Once your dress has been finalised, and you are absolutely thrilled with the final result, then the final payment can be made and you may take your dream dress home.
