Dresses made by hand in our Johannesburg studio

Crafted with extreme attention to detail.


Lavender Dress

Zaphrika started as a childhood dream. Growing up, you could always find me under my mother’s sewing table, fascinated by all the beautiful fabrics, and what you can create. Entering the fashion industry was a natural progression for me.

I love to travel to different destinations around the world, and I’m always in search of unique and incredible fabrics for our dress collections.

Most of the time we only keep a limited amount of dresses or skirts available in one fabric, to keep our collection exclusive. You might even be the lucky one that has a one-of-kind piece in the whole of South Africa.

We have a beautiful range of photography dresses available to rent for all your photography dreams. We design and make all our dresses in Johannesburg, within the comfort of Zaphrika Studio.

If you love our style, you can now buy our Ready-to-Wear Collection available on our “SHOP” page. Book your appointment today for a custom made dress.

These once-off pieces are limited and can not be repeated, so it is crucial to book in advance as soon as alerts go out via Instagram and Facebook, when new items are added to our rails.

Thank you for making Zaphrika a special part of your journey.
