Babette Clothing is a vintage fashion collection of authentic dresses.  They are altered and remade, but without spraying too far from the original style.  Babette doesn’t only do these quirky remade dresses, but also has a collection of vintage blouses, floppy hats, belts, bad-ass jewels, and vintage shoes you wish you owned!

Babette is the brainchild and spawn of fashion designer Barbara Lötter.  It was through her studies at the Elizabeth Galloway Fashion Academy in Stellenbosch that changed the way she looked at fashion and developed her real passion for the vintage world.  Barbara travelled the world after studying and the thought of a collection of authentic dresses, altered and remade to make more wearable for the lifestyle of today, kicked in and took over.

Babette instantly became a hit and sought after with numerous spreads in magazine and stocked in several boutiques country wide, with her showroom and retail outlet in Woodstock, Cape Town.

The clothing line instantly became sought after, regularly features in fashion magazines and is now available at several boutiques country wide.  These dresses made of various fabrics will bring you days of good memories and loads of wearing fun!  Something that is strong becoming a closet must-have item.

Now it’s only conincidental (and I swear it really is coincidental!) that Babette is having her first BIG BIG BIRTHDAY SALE next week!  Now if you’ve ever had any excuse not to get your hands on Babette dresses, those excuses aren’t valid anymore.  For more information on the Babette sale visit the Facebook page here.
