As it’s Cape Town Fashion Week I thought you should meet a fabulous South African fashion designer Michelle Ludek. Michelle spent time overseas honing her creativity and skills in Canada and Europe before returning to South Africa to fulfill her dream of creating ready-to-wear garments for women designed by women. Every one of Michelle’s creations are a perfect combination of fabric and form and I’m definitely ready to wear them!In fact I think that if Genevieve MCC were a dress Michelle would have probably designed it.
Read on and you’ll discover that Michelle’s impeccable taste doesn’t just stop at fashion!
