SA Fashion week Autumn Winter 2013 collection was recently held at the Crown Plaza in Rosebank, Johannesburg. One designer that made a particular impression on me, is Vesselina Pentcheva, a Bulgarian born South African designer. She made her debut at the tender age of 16 in her home town of Russe, and has been a work in progress ever since, leaving a distinct mark on the industry. No doubt she has established a large following....Her designs are feminine yet sexy, exudes style and class. She is a women who knows what other women wants, and clearly in touch with what we all want! The use of velvet has been very prominent in her previous collection, and portrays something theatrical and seductive. She arrived and started work in South Africa in 1993, where she has become a household name, may she continue her success! The dress below is from a previous collection.
