About us

Belle of the Ball specialises in creating that special dress for any occasion. From our studio in Pretoria, we have been making each of our “belle’s” dream-dress wishes come true for more than twenty years and we look forward to helping you too!

Over the years we have learnt exactly what women look for when it comes to creating their special dress - someone who will listen to what they want and bring it to life through attention to detail, expertise, a keen eye and creativity. We know that on your special day you will want to look and feel wonderful and our personalised designs and service will make this a reality! Consider us the fairy god mother of your dress!

The process includes an initial one-on-one meeting with the owner, Maxine Stander, a seamstress and our belle where we discuss your unique vision. The next step is choosing your fabric, Maxine goes with each of our belles to help them find the perfect fabric to suit their dress and personal style.

We then continue to work closely together to create a dress worthy of the most treasured moments that it is worn in.
