About Us

Based in Johannesburg, all our garments are proudly manufactured in South Africa. We offer each customer a personalized ‘one-on-one’ consultation. At House of Mania, our mission is to provide customers with the ultimate in fashion, fit and service. The satisfaction of our customer on her special day is our priority.

Our passion is found in custom-made dresses, whether designed from scratch by yourself or our resident designer, Marthe, or inspired by the latest fashion runway designs. Our dresses are made-to-order, which means that they are brand new and made especially for you! Marthe designed and made her own wedding dress, and so understands well the importance of finding that unique gown for your special day. We specialise in bridal, evening wear, mother-of-the-bride/groom outfits, bridesmaids, flower girls, special occasions, tailoring, cocktail dresses, and African/traditional wear.

Every customer deserves the perfect dress and a dress that will suit her special needs and unique taste. So what better way to get this, than designing your own dress? Simply begin by finding what details you love and shapes of dresses that you know will suit your figure, then send us a picture of your very own or design-inspired dress and we’ll create your picture-perfect dress, tweaked to fit your unique style.

House of Mania also understands the needs of the budget-conscious customer and can offer you the best of both worlds. We are able to offer you a custom-made gown that is rich in elegance, romance, and royal sophistication without the hefty price tag. We will do our best, within reason, to stay within your budget in order to make all your dress dreams come true.

We also appreciate the needs of the fuller-figured lady, understanding that such women cannot always find the perfect fit for your unique body size and shape. We aim to make you feel beautiful and special, in our custom-made gowns, as every woman should.

We also custom-make various bridal accessories to complement and complete your garment: veils, fascinators, head bands, garters, bouquets, etc.

Please visit our gallery to see our satisfied customers in their beautiful garments. A collection of sample dresses is also available for viewing to testify to the quality of our gowns.

We encourage you to contact us to discuss your ideas and requirements and arrange for a consultation. We want to understand the details about your wedding to help guide you to the right decision. We provide you with extraordinary service, reliable advice and a truly unique experience.
