I’m going to be focusing on some creative talent from Port Elizabeth in some upcoming posts starting with the talented Stephanie Beyers and Dieter van den Bergh who started Silver Spoon in 2008. The two studied Fashion Design at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and they’ve been showing at SA Fashion Week since 2009.
“We like beautiful things. So a while back, in April 2008, we decided to make our own. Silver Spoon is a line that makes us happy. A quaint place to channel everything we’ve learnt. We make functional pieces with character; things you could wear to the market. Or the park. Or a visit to your distant aunt for your usual cup of tea. It’s you, with a touch of thread and fabric thrown in for good measure. And its lovely to meet you.”
Silver Spoon supplies 25 stores nationwide so there are plenty of places to get your hands on one of their pretty designs.
