Welcome to My Dear. . .
Holly Jenkins and Caragh Richards are the creative force behind the My Dear… label.
Caragh and Holly met at PE technikon Fashion school in Port Elizabeth in 2004.
In 2009 they began designing wedding dresses and matric farewell dresses for local Cape Town clients. ‘We started off small, designing and putting together 1 or 2 dresses a month. We both have day-jobs so this worked well for us in the beginning.
They both have a strong passion for design and attention to detail, ‘What we enjoy most is client satisfaction. Creating a gown that transforms any woman into a beautiful lady. We believe that dressing well should be easy for which we aspire to. And when it comes to an evening gown, in the words of Coco Chanel - ‘a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous’.
Manipulating fabric and a key eye for refined style lines is their speciality, ensuring every item fits perfectly. “we love beautiful fabrics, the texture, the drape – creating a perfectly finished garment is what we strive for.”
“Working as a tight team contributes to our enthusiasm…
We really work well together, continuously bouncing ideas off each other. If one is not sure, the other will reassure. It works.”
This duo is quirky and fabulous and bring a touch of their individuality to each garment, transforming every woman’s dream into a reality.
