BRAND VISION & CLOTHING DNA
Shana is a collaboration between Shana Morland and Robbi Gorelick, started in 2011. The shop can be found in Kloof street, Cape Town with a variety of both ready-to-wear and special occasion garments. All garments are made locally with an emphasis on good construction techniques and design, resulting in great, timeless pieces. The fabrics are sourced both locally and internationally, and every step is taken to ensure they are natural as far as possible.
For summer 2016 the colour palette is pastel shades of pink, blue, ivory with bright pops of colour thrown in. Dresses are made from a variety of cotton lace, silk organza, silk chiffon and tulle. The summer collection is playful and feminine taking inspiration from the French carousel with all its charm and luxurious details. Embroidery is another feature to expect as well as lots of hand embellishment. Silhouettes come in varied lengths, from maxi to mid-thigh with pairings of cropped t-shirts with flowing skirts.
