Kelly Mae Dillon is a fashion designer based in the small coastal town of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Named after her late grandfather, whose entrepreneurial skill she followed, started her own business after being named the ELLE Magazine New Talent Designer of the year in her fourth year of studies.
She always knew from a very young age that she would be in the fashion world, after her mom would always catch her playing dress up in her wardrobe. Design is simply who she is and is also an extension of her heart and hands – something she feels honoured to do every day.
Kelly Mae Dillon is at its core, a knitwear fashion brand. However, this collection of luxury knitwear is about so much more than just fashion. The magic and ethos which surrounds these authentic designs is captured in the core values of those who make them. Team work, social responsibility, ethics, transparency, equality and sustainability are all evident when analysing the pure luxurious quality of the garments and the masterful craftsmanship of the Kelly Mae Dillon collection.
It is inspired by nature and every stitch and pattern is made with tremendous love, passion and care. Each garment is bold yet subtle, fashion forward without being ostentatious and truly represents what the modern woman is all about – style, class and elegance personified.
Ultimately, it is rooted in sophistication and conveys a subtle beauty that gives every woman an opportunity to feel comfortable, confident and fashionable through a versatile wardrobe which sees every client through not only the current season, but for many more to come
