After relocating to Cape Town from Europe, Polish designer Kat van Duinen’s passion for effortless elegance saw the birth of her eponymous label in Cape Town in 2010, which has since grown to become an iconic fusion of her European heritage and love for the richness of South Africa – a place she now calls home. What began solely as a luxury leather brand quickly grew into a fashion house that evolved to offer ready-to-wear garment collections as well as couture to private clients.

“I believe in a well-curated, quality wardrobe that is not brimming with trend-based pieces, but rather carefully filled with garments and accessories that are timeless and versatile – and that will be passed down from generation to generation.” ~ Kat van Duinen
