Kay Lockwood (Turvey)
Hip-Kit is a niche business importing hand-stitched leather belts from South America. These belts are sold at various markets or by appointment and a limited range is available for select lodges and boutiques.
Hip Kit was launched by Kay five years ago following a horse riding holiday in Argentina with her daughters. They brought back a few belts which were well received as gifts and subsequently spurred by a Tatler article, citing the belts as the hottest item to translate from the Argentinean polo fields to Europe, Kay launched Hip-Kit. Today the belts are a gift of choice for all milestone celebrations.
Contact Kay by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 073 156 8492.

Sleepwear | Durban, online
Anna Downes (Atkinson)
After finishing at Elizabeth Galloway Fashion Academy in Stellenbosch my dream was to become a designer, so I gained experience in retail, media and styling before focusing on my designer dream. Anna-Louise was born out of love for sleepwear and the frustration over the lack of sophisticated products available in the market. Anna-Louise Sleepwear creates calm in the evenings, a balance in the chaos of life that helps leave the stresses of your day behind. Anna-Louise Sleepwear collection is the epitome of style, perfect for early morning school drop offs, a stylish Sunday breakfast with house guests, a comfy and classic look for new mum’s in hospital and a cute gift to bridesmaids or brides to be for the morning of the wedding day.
