  • “Thank you Rose for making the most wonderful wedding dress for Natalie and in super quick time!  Also thank you for your patience with me a mother who has no clue on fashion and your willingness to come to my office to do a fitting the day before the wedding!”
  • “Rose is a very talented designer, who put in a lot of effort to help me capture the essence of my dress, from day one through to completion. I would definitely go to her again for any dress designs or revamps”
  • I can highly recommend Rose Molteno, not only for her workmanship, which is impeccable, more so her client service from inception to the final fitting, she designed my daughters matric dance dress to her expectation, one happy client, well done Rose and I wish you all the best in business.
  • Rose is a true professional - with only three conveniently quick fittings Rose created the most sensational bridesmaids dress I was excited and most chuffed to wear. The compliments on the day were testament to her beautiful design. It was an absolute pleasure working with Rose - who understands and fulfills her clients needs perfectly. I will certainly be using Rose's talent again and highly recommend her.
  • I would like to thank Rose for making my matric farewell dress. Her standard of work is of the best quality and her kind and professional mannerisms made it a pleasure dealing with her. I highly recommend Rose to anyone who needs that special outfit made. 
  • Thanks very much for the beautiful dress you made for me for my sons wedding in just 5 short fittings. It came out just as the photo I gave you . I was really please with the fit and the colour and just loved the lace. 
  • You made Becky a beautiful dress that she really loved and that matched her personality.  We really enjoyed your professionalism and friendliness.  Who knows, maybe in a few year’s time you will be making Becky’s wedding dress !!!!
  • The profoundly remarkable thing about the dress Rose Molteno created is that: for a dress to stand out with minimalistic red lace and georgette (between a sea of glitter and satin) is art. I own two meters of evergreen art and for that, Rose Molteno, I am grateful forever.
