Dedicated to exclusive, bespoke design, we are passionate about supplying beautifully crafted, custom-made uniforms and accessories to luxury retail and hospitality brands across the African continent.

Catering for all departments from front of house to back of house, we pride ourselves in providing our clients with tailor-made design solutions that not only look and feel beautiful, but also serve a function in the workplace and are aligned to the company vision. Through our garments, it is our goal to uplift staff and provide them with work attire they are proud to wear.

Passionate about sustainable and responsible design, we consider all aspects when designing. From the location and climate to job description and company branding, our key focus is creating solutions with the best suitable fabrications driving unity between departments and synergy with the interior design.

Alongside our growing client base in the hospitality industry including game lodges, luxury hotels, beauty spas and restaurants; we also supply to select premium retail brands, such as Spitz, Kurt Geiger, Gant and Green Cross.


Following an exciting career in fashion as co-founder of high-fashion label Marion & Lindie, Marion’s love for personalised design encouraged her to step out on her own. In 2000 she launched Marion Reed Design, specialising in bespoke uniform and accessories design and manufacture. Her first client was a luxury island resort in the Seychelles.

With over 30 years’ experience in the clothing and manufacturing industry, Marion holds a wealth of knowledge and her expertise focuses on creating tailor-made workwear solutions that are not only beautiful but also practical. Her love for Africa and African artefacts, as well as a passion to travel and experience new cultures, serves as inspiration along with her drive to craft responsible design.

Together with my experienced team we are passionate about working alongside our clients to find the best design solutions for them and their company, making their staff members feel and look great as well as proud of the work attire they are wearing.
