Nanine Fine Wear - Fashion Designer Wear, Cape Town

Wardrobe Revamp

After twenty years in the industry it’s time to live out my real passion: Assisting women with the revamp, restyling and remodeling of their wardrobes. I want my clients to dress to impress, to turn heads and receive compliments. Looking good and feeling great is what it’s all about. Perfectly suited, well shaped clothing can hide a multitude of sins and make a subject look fantastic. I’ve taken a strategic decision to channel my couture talents from the stage to the everyday situation…

The world has undergone a radical change. There is no longer a need to be a fashion victim and every excuse to make vintage sexy. Life is all about re-introducing the classics and the spotlight, once again, is on shape, form fitting apparel and wearing what is flattering rather than high fashion. The recession has forced us to take a look at our existing wardrobes, to re-evaluate what we have. It’s time to rediscover the items at the back of the cupboard. Isn’t it surprising how many beautiful (often unworn) things we all possess? 

Creating a whole new wardrobe – and often a whole new look can add spice to life and even affect our confidence levels. Basic “black” dressing has become a little too safe and with the introduction of a few style accessories and a bit of necessary expert alteration and remodeling I shall introduce you to a new wardrobe and a new you! I would, therefore, like to invite a select number of women to make use of my new wardrobe revamp consultancy. Through a fun process of approximately three private sessions (see below) I endeavour to:

  • assess and do a fashion forensic on your wardrobe
  • suggest what to throw out and point out which perfect basics are missing
  • Select certain items for couture alteration to ensure super style changes and perfect fit remodeling (You cannot believe what we can do to your very own garments!)
  • invite you to my Salon showroom where we shall select a number of the “missing items” @ trade costing (heavily discounted boutique prices)
  • re-merchandise your wardrobe in categories to suit your lifestyle
    and finally - accompany you on a private shopping spree in search of one or two (illusive) dream items

** Kindly note that I shall be taking on a total of twenty private clients as my time is limited between range development and travelling. Should you wish to make use of the 2010 COUTURE VAMP CONSULT, kindly contact me for a preliminary interview chat on 021 461 0053.
