Marie Claire (South Africa) - - CATWALK BRIDE -

Fresh out of col­lege, 22-year-old Daniella du Plessis has be­gun her de­sign ca­reer in the bridal in­dus­try, where she felt there was a space

for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. She has re­cently launched Honne, her la­bel fo­cus­ing on bridal­wear, the word it­self re­fer­ring to gen­uine in­ti­macy.‘I wanted to cre­ate some­thing that broke

away from the tra­di­tional mould while still be­ing beau­ti­ful and fem­i­nine. My con­cept cen­tres on sim­ple shapes that a bride can buy, know­ing they fit per­fectly. We take a shape and fit and cus­tomise it, so each bride’s

look is unique,’ says Daniella. We love the sim­plic­ity of these easy-to-wear shapes.The dresses show a new take on the of­ten over­com­pli­cated, tra­di­tional gowns we are used to. Brides­maid’s dresses start at R1 200 and wed­ding gowns at R7 250 – and we can’t wait to see what this young de­signer comes up with next.
