Our passion at Marion Reed Design is to create unique products that emanate quality, service and authenticity.
MARION REED-FERREIRA | DIRECTOR
From design concept to personalised delivery, our end-to-end service is expertly delivered by our experienced team ensuring a smooth process. We are not a catalogue-based supplier, but instead offer a bespoke style design service for every client.
We meet with clients on-site to discuss requirements, the company and location. We take pride in understanding our clients’ needs and translating those into a unique design. The design process can then either be completed on-site or remotely.
The client sends through a detailed brief outlining requirements. From the Johannesburg head office, we brainstorm and conceptualise our custom design sending through a beautifully crafted presentation for approval.
Clients receive a measurement chart and instructions. Although we have researched thoroughly to ensure that our charts and garment sizing corresponds accordingly we cannot guarantee complete accuracy.
Using a generic size curve of basic garments, we personally fit each staff member to obtain the best sizing fit. Please note our garments are not made to measure, but are based on standard measurements.
Our designs are brought to life with samples for client approval. A sampling fee is charged, however, these costs can be absorbed into the primary order as they are used as part of the production samples after sign off.
All initial design samples are manufactured in-house. For bulk orders we work with our trusted manufacturing partners. Having an in-house sample room also means that when you need to order small quantities of replacement units we are ready and able to assist.
ORDER & PRODUCTION
A detailed pro-forma invoice will be supplied on receipt of the purchase order with a 70% deposit required to confirm the order. Once the deposit is received manufacturing will commence. We work on a 6 – 8 week lead time depending on the order size.
PACKING & DELIVERY
All garments are quality-controlled, packed and labelled per staff member ensuring high-end quality and easy on-site distribution. We arrange all logistics and transport on receipt of the final balance payment to ensure a smooth and timeous delivery.
Marion Reed Design’s collection for the uniforms was inspirational and hand in hand with my vision for Xigera.”
Marion and her team have always gone the extra mile to dye fabric, source new materials, perfect pattern making and embroider and detail as necessary. The biggest compliment is always how many times the guests ask to buy the clothes off the staff!”
I regard her as the benchmark supplier of Hotel and Lodge uniforms and outfits in Southern Africa. Her creative designs, functional and durable outfits backed up by efficient and friendly service simplifies the process with the end result of staff wearing well fitted and tailor made outfits and uniforms that complement the work environment.”
The uniforms are functional, practical and beautiful which is a skill which very few clothing or uniform manufacturers have mastered. Additionally Marion ensures that the uniforms also fit into the environment and setting of your establishment. What sets her apart are the tailor made items, unique to your establishment and also the after sales and continued support. The passion of Marion clearly reflects in the end product.”
