The Oh Huntress Story
My name is Emma and I am a Durban based wedding dress designer. I absolutely love creating hand stitched authentic wedding dresses that are crafted to fit and make you feel uniquely yourself on your wedding day.
Growing up on a farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands I have always been exposed to hands-on, authentic craft. Whether it was making a meal with fresh veggies from the garden or watching my mother dye and spin wool from our sheep, creating has always been a big part of my life from an early age.
As I grew up I started to recognise the huge connection I felt between emotions and clothing and started to focus my love for craft into creating once-off pieces of clothing that made me feel 100% myself. This slowly and naturally progressed into my passion for making wedding dresses.
I strive to make each bride feel comfortably and beautifully themselves in their dress, because
when we are truly ourselves we feel happiest and most radiant.
