More About Johan Botha
Johan is a self-thought fashion Designer who has been in the fashion industry for more than 28 years. For him, it is all about showing a bride’s personality through her dress. He feels that a bride has to be comfortable in her own skin and the most beautiful thing a woman can wear, is confidence.
He is inspired by the femininity of a woman and he has the belief that there is a dress for every bride. He likes to focuss on the womanliness of a bride with the use of soft and flowing materials with structure in the design. “I love to make a woman’s dress- dreams become a reality. A woman can wear any dress and style, if it was made for her from the start.”

What We Offer
At Johan Botha Fashion we believe that a bride’s personality should be showcased in her dress. Johan starts of with a consultation during which he gets to know his client a bit better, then he gives her a couple of dresses to try on to see what works best for her body and style. Afterwards they sit down for a chat and Johan designs a dress accordingly.
At Johan Botha Fashion we know that every woman is unique and for this reason we draft up a pattern for each dress and do not make use of standard patterns.
For a custom made dress we require 4 to 6 fittings, to ensure perfect fit. We make use of the long way to make dresses but it is the correct way. We start with a calico fitting, followed by a lining fitting, to ensure that the client is satisfied with the design lines.
We feel that a client has to feel in control every step of the way from choosing materials and lace to the final completed dress.
Ready to Wear
For the clients with a shorter lead time we have a selection of unique pieces in our showroom. These pieces are all one of a kind in various styles, sizes and colours. All of our pieces are handcrafted and created with special attention to detail. These pieces are never to be repeated. We want all of our clients to feel special on their most important day, which is why we do not mass produce our dresses.
Our dresses are designed to be worn on the happiest, most important days of our clients lives. All of our pieces are created with the sole purpose of making our clients look and feel stunning. It is such a waste to let these creations be hidden in dusty cupboards after being used only once. Pre-loved can be given life once again when worn for a second time, making another client’s dress dreams become a reality.
