About Nanine

Nanine du Plessis started making clothes from a young age, following in her grandmother's footsteps. After school, she studied at Cape Town Technikon, where she won the Best Creative Student award in her final year.

In 1989, she moved to Johannesburg, where she started working for well known fashion designer Marianne Fassler. After an exciting five years, she moved back to Cape Town where she joined Anthula Markovitz and her label called Bianca Collection. In 1998 they won the J&B Rare Designer award.

In 1998, Nanine started her own label, Nanine Fine Wear. The Nanine Fine Wear label interprets international fashion trends in a range that embodies the South African woman's lifestyle. Fabrics are imported from Europe and made in South Africa to form a look that is sophisticated, and creative yet timeless.

The label is known for producing quality clothing and is famous for the perfect fit of its woven stretch pants. The company produces four to five ranges per year, all available at selected boutiques countrywide. The Nanine Vintage label was introduced to reflect timeless designer wear. These garments are incorporated into the open ranges. The Vintage label includes one-off designer garments, made to order for individual customers.
