We thought it was time we gave you a little insight into the South African-born fashion designer behind Anna Georgina.
Kobus Dippenaar was born in 1968, in the Western Cape town of Paarl. After being drafted for military service, Dippenaar returned to his studies and completed a diploma in fashion at the Cape Town Technicon. Working from his home, Dippenaar’s designs went on to win multiple awards.
In 2012, we saw Kobus Dippenaar launch his Anna Georgina wedding gown range. The collections have continued to grow out of his desire to take haute couture fashion and make it accessible.
“Dippenaar’s collections feature his trademark exploration of the play between masculinity and femininity, between structure and fluidity.
Full skirts contrast with boning and corsetry, while Swarovski elements twinkle against figure-defining lines. His creations draw on the linear textures of silk dupoin, the old-world magic of lace, the sensuousness of silk charmeuse and the lightness of tulle. Vogue colours include blush, pale pinks, ivory and gold.
Anna Georgina truly is an ode to every woman.”
