My Business History and Background

  • I started Abracadabra Clothing when I identified a need and desire for designer fancy dress clothing for children. I designed, created and marketed this range.
  • I added a dance wear range for girls which I also designed, branded and created. This range was successfully distributed to retailers.
  • Another range I introduced was unique and exquisite imported scarves. I successfully distributed these scarves to select boutiques.
  • I have always had a passion for beautiful Wedding Gowns and the magic they create for brides. This inspired me to open ZiZou Bridal Boutique in April 2014.
  • What differentiates my offering to brides :
    • I understand the importance of finding that perfect dress, ‘the one that was made for you’!
    • I am fully committed to providing and assisting each bride with every dream, desire and need she has regarding her gown and accessories.
