Eve's Bridalwear (Cape Town)

Add Favorites

Eve Levinsohn studied at the Ivor Kirsten Academy of Fashion where after she was immediately offered a position as head designer at the Edcon Group. She started off designing for Celrose the in-house manufacturing company for the then Edgars Group but went on to design for many of the other labels within the group such as Shelly Shops, Kelso, Merienne Hall, Penny C, Charter Club, Nite Out as well as Sales House and Jet Stores.

Thereafter, she progressed into the exciting world of merchandising and travelled the world buying samples and was part of a team in a department called “the design centre” which specialised in trend and colour forecasting.

Her love of eveningwear and bling prompted Eve to start her own business when she felt that she had achieved as much as she could with her current position. She went on her own and produced a range which she sold to boutiques such as Dodo’s and Elle Boutique. Wedding gowns were a natural progression from this and Eve’s Bridalwear was born.

Business philosophy: Always be honest, friendly and kind. Listen to what clients are saying and strive to give a hundred percent of herself.

Greatest Achievement: Building a significant business in the bridal wear market and being featured on Top Billing several times.

Nonzwakazi Masina was born and bred at Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Nzwaki, as she’s affectionately known, was always intrigued by the glitz and glamour and how beautiful people looked on the TV screen and glossy fashion magazines.

After her matric, Nzwaki studied Beauty Therapy and Fashion Design at the Damelin College. Nzwaki’s first job as a cosmetologist saw her working for a few top brands before joining a leading cosmetics company, the MAC Group. She worked for the MAC Group for 3 and half years as manager in Eastgate, Johannesburg.

Over the years, Nzwaki has been a well sought after cosmetologist and has since been involved with some of the top assignments in the Johannesburg beauty calendar, including the Fashion Week events and offering cosmetology services to some of the leading fashion magazines. Nzwaki’s expertise in cosmetology saw her “beautify” one of the leading ladies in Africa and spouse to the former President Nelson Mandela, Mrs. Graca Machel and her daughter, Josina.

Nzwaki and Eve’s Bridal Wear founder Eve Levinsohn business union followed their meeting at a shoot for Top Billing shoot, a TV fashion magazine show on SABC 3, and as they say the rest is history. “I fell in love with Eve’s style of bling wedding gowns”, says Nzwaki. She joined Eve’s Bridalwear as a partner in 2008. “It’s a dream come true to co-own the most glamorous one-stop bridal shop in town I love being part of making Brides feel like Princesses on their Special Day,” says Nzwaki.
