On a recent return visit to Johannesburg, South Africa, where we lived for many years, I was looking for Western smart formal wear for my daughter. We now live in India, and office appropriate Western clothing isn’t always easy to find.
I was pointed in the direction of Jenni Button, and found a shop where I could have bought just about every item of clothing, so elegant and so smart and so classic are her designs.
How is it possible that I lived all those years in South Africa, in ignorance of this talented designer?
Ah well, better late than never is my mantra.
Loved the look and feel of the shop in Sandton City, with the colour co-ordinated displays.
Ms Button has simple formal wear and cocktail dresses, for example, all hanging together, by colour, tempting you to mix and match.
As an aside: I found small size clothes difficult to track down on my earlier not very fruitful shopping trips through the better known stores in SA. I needed Size 6, and very few stores had this size on offer. Jenni Button did.
I didn’t tell the staff in the shop that I blog or review. And I obviously paid for all the gorgeous outfits I bought.
