Judith-Atelier is a high-end womenswear and couture design label produced between the Ceres Mountains, near Cape Town, in the Western Cape.
Founded in 2014, the eponymous brand
name is a gentle nod to designer and owner, Judith Smit’s grandmother Judith, who is also the inspiration for the company’s ethos of empowering women – both as workers and as wearers of its timeless, unique style.
The label intrinsically aims to emphasise femininity in its selection of quality fabric, recognition of the female body shape and attention to detail.
“The story-telling of South Africa, everyday people, photography, nature, landscapes and textures are our main influences and inspirations when building a Judith Atelier collection,” Smit says.
