The First Lady of Fashion Marianne Fassler shows off some of her latest designs.
Fashion designer Marianne Fassler is regarded as the First Lady Of Fashion. More original artist than designer, she prides herself on constantly reinventing what she calls her chosen 'art form'.
Marianne is anything but ordinary. She describes herself as unashamedly 'different, African and anti-fashion', three concepts that have made her designs among the most sought after in the industry. Marianne Fassler's Johannesburg studio is named 'Leopard Frock' and is situated in the beautiful and leafy suburb of Saxonwold, where she mentors aspiring designers and artists. It’s the perfect place to meet one of South Africa’s more unique fashion designers as well as the women who help her detail those famous Marianne Fassler designs.
