Vanessa Gounden’s passion for fashion combined with her strong business acumen has provided a great platform to diversify and fullfill a life-long dream: to establish an international, well respected, multi-brand fashion house associated with luxury, exclusiveness, sophistication and elegance.

‘Fashion for me is not a once off statement.  One must understand one’s body and focus on what enhances you as a person.
Be fashionable but don’t lose your identity to fashion.’- Vanessa Gounden

In furtherance of this dream Vanessa has established her own Luxury fashion label, Vanessa Gounden London and has recently acquired the most well established luxury multibrand fashion house, D'Ore in Sandton City, Sandton South Africa.

D'Ore not only hosts the Vanessa G London range but also is the exclusive distributor in South Africa of such brands as Escada, Armani Collezioni, Laurel and Bassler
