We are currently entering wedding season, so we are joined by the designer and founder of SAFANJA Designs, Liese Morgan. SAFANJA Designs is evening wear and bridal boutique, and they will be discussing and showing off some of the trending designs, of the 2018 wedding season.
Liese obtained her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design at CPUT, in Cape Town, during this time she obtained the Deans Merit Award. After graduating she went on to work in the industry for 3 years, working as a design assistant in commercial sector, a fashion lecturer, and a creative design assistant in the private sector. All this before she went on to start SAFANJA Designs in 2015.
Most couples who want to get married, often prefer to have summer weddings, which is why many people in the bridal industry often refer to this time of year as ‘Crazy season’, due to the number of requests. This leaves many wedding venues fully booked, often with 2 weddings in a day. During these days there is also a heavy toll on designers, as they have work on designs and outfits for whole bridal parties, all on a tight deadline. This all happens while the designers still have to manage other clients while dealing with the sometimes difficult personalities of the brides.
