This announced her future in the SA fashion industry by securing a coveted slot in SA Fashion Week.
After a successful 2004, Kathrin Kidger established her label, Reine. It was only after winning the Smirnoff Red Fashion Awards 2004, however that she was able to focus her full attention on her label.
