Alana Design, Bridal Designer – Alana is an amazing designer and a close friend of mine. I was fortunate enough to spend sometime with her in her studio at home. In her own words, here is a little more about Alana and ALANA DESIGN.
“I am an ardent adorer of pretty things… Delicate vintage lace, ‘blush’ tones, lush layers of tulle, and skillfully handcrafted flowers. Trends hot of the runway, trends right off the vintage shop rail, bunches of beautifully scented lavender, soft scatter cushions, stirring photographs, red-velvet cupcakes and of course… my job!!
I am a bridal designer currently based in Cape Town, South Africa. Since my journey with fashion began, I can honestly say that I cannot envision myself doing anything else! I love what I do. This is my dream. This is my happy place. And I’m incredibly blessed to have been able to turn my passion into a career.
After I completed a BA in Fashion Design at The Design School Southern Africa, I went on to work as an assistant designer to Marianne Fassler – my mentor and teacher. What I have learnt from Marianne has become an intrinsic part of my design craft, workmanship and career ethic. I will forever be grateful for such a wonderful opportunity!
It is my privilege to translate the dreams of each bride into an awe-inspiring reality. Maybe you’re here looking for inspiration and ideas for your own wedding that’s just around the corner; or perhaps you’re colouring in your dreams for when you find your Mr Right. Whatever your status quo, I hope you are standing on the threshold of something beautiful.”
