A warm welcome to AntAtHome. My name is Antoinette Morkel. I design, assemble and sew all garments from my home based studio in Hermanus, a seaside village near Cape Town. Not your regular nine to fiver, I love working from home, and the freedom it gives me to do so. The freedom to create comfortable garments, with classic lines, and a nostalgic 'touch from the past'... My shop slogan "no two garments are the same" explains the need for individuality and a certain degree of iconoclasm, thereby affording the owner a unique wardrobe winner :) ******************** My reasons for opening a shop has much to do with the realisation that there is a great need for unique fashion clothing. Feminine, comfortable clothing, but with individual nuances. A subtle difference in each and every garment makes us feel special, unique and 'one of a kind'. AntAtHome is a one woman show. I make and design all the garments. From cutting out the pattern, assembling the pieces and finally stitching them together, I try not to waste precious silks, chiffons and rare prints, thereby creating new outfits with these fabrics left over from before. Many of the Indian Silks, Chiffons and Georgette's are one of a kind fabrics from the Vintage era. Irregular colouring and texture is part of the dye and weave process. In this way, each creation becomes uniquely different, in that "no two garments are ever the same". I take pride of my creation and treat each piece as if I am going to wear it. I have always been inspired by the Nouveau era, incorporating the beautiful lines, colours and textures into designs, thereby simultaneously giving stature and necessary subtleness to new creations. ******************** Sewing is a creative Art. As an architect, or artist, would draw or paint, designing clothes is not much different, in that one is able to use the imagination and steely practicality to bring into form something unique, and thereby, losing oneself in the landscape of Imagination... I have been making clothes for ladies in Cape town for a few years now, but that I am able to sell my designs in my own shop online, to women all over the world is truly a dream come true and for that, I am enormously grateful. To see customers happy and feeling beautiful wearing my clothes gives great pleasure...
