The Designer

Sadie Bosworth Atelier, headed up by Sadie Bosworth and based in Durban, South Africa, specialises in creating one-of-a-kind bridal gowns that are characterised by their distinctive style, unique ethereal quality and unequaled attention-to-detail. Sadie Bosworth's design aesthetic is delicate and strikingly sensual; each gown reflects her love of her materials and the act of creating beautiful garments.  

Before studying Fashion Design at the Durban Uuniversity of Technology, Sadie Bosworth was already examining the psychology behind clothing, how we perform our identity through the way we dress and the academic side of the fashion industry as part of research for a Masters degree. With this rich intellectual approach, Sadie Bosworth designs in a thought-provoking and intuitive way. For this designer, fashion is about bringing together a love of texture, fabric and history to create garments that function as wearable artworks. Sadie Bosworth has a talent for marrying together the creative and practical elements of design which she uses to demonstrate a level of skill which is often neglected in an industry obsessed with fast fashion. 

Sadie Bosworth’s commitment to her design aesthetic and ever-growing list of awards makes her one of South Africa’s up and coming designers. She creates bespoke garments for a discerning clientele, as well as producing seasonal ranges.  The designer offers a range of wedding dresses from her celestially-inspired 2016 Constellation collection. These gowns are available to view at her studio at Open Plan Studio, 39 Station Drive, Durban, KZN, by appointment. ​
