Casey Jeanne is a Durban based designer who gained popularity for her glamorous bridal designs. Soon after that, she created Lumiere, which is a natural hand poured soy and coconut wax blend luxury candle using scents that evoke a love for adventure that lead us to drift and wander. The attention to detail on every one of them is amazing, and it is praised for the combination of glamour, elegance and luxury it embodies.
At the age of 18, Casey started studying Fashion & Textiles at the Durban University of Technology. She quickly began to gain recognition for her quality of workmanship and attention to detail. During her studies, Casey designed and made numerous once-off creations for her personal clientele and five years later she has gone on to graduate with full distinction in her Bachelor of Arts Degree. In 2012, Casey Jeanne was awarded the Vukani Fashion Awards National Best Collection and overall title winner as well as the national winner for the Live Out Loud Young Designer Bridal Awards. She also took the titles of Gateway’s Durban July Preview Show Recycled Designer Winner as well as first place at the Young Designer Awards in Sandton in the same year. At the end of 2012, she designed and made 2009 Top Billing Presenter Search winner, Kelly Parkhurst’s wedding gown. Casey was then awarded first place in the Vodacom Durban July Fashion Challenge and runner up at the National Wedding Expo Young Designer competition. Recently, she launched a ready-to-wear collection which is stocked at Edgars in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg. She may be just 31 years of age, but she has gained mentorship from leading names in the industry and is a force to be reckoned with!
