I was lucky enough to go to their first birthday the other night and was absolutely blown away by this every so stylish store and what it has to offer! The intimate soiree was an exclusive invitation-only affair showcasing the latest brands to enter their stable. I’ve seen Vanessa G’s trench coats in photos but have never actually seen one in real life and touched it. The beautiful prints and colours will blow you away when up close! Other brands that blew me away on the night were Roberto Cavalli and Escada. The store has a lot of the SS14 in stock and it was very exciting to see the styles and colours that will be heading our way soon for summer!

The tremendous success of D’ORÉ’s first year of trading and its renewed fashion-forward focus can be attributed to owner, Vanessa Gounden’s global influence and passion for the world of fashion. The dynamic Vanessa Gounden is one of South Africa’s leading female entrepreneurs, CEO of The HolGoun Group, and Founder and Creative Director of international luxury fashion label, ‘Vanessa G London’, which is fast gaining cult status in London and New York, with an annual presence at Fashion Weeks in both cities.

With business interests spanning across Africa, Europe and Asia, Vanessa is using D’ORÉ as a platform to diversify and fulfil a lifelong dream: to establish a respected, international multi-brand fashion house associated with luxury, exclusiveness, sophistication and elegance. And Gounden has big plans for D’ORÉ; with a number of additional stores in the pipeline, D’ORÉ hopes to soon be available in a host of key Southern and West African cities.

Everything Gounden touches turns to gold, and ironically D’ORÉ is French for “gold”.  Vanessa truly is an inspiring lady!



D’ORÉ officially launched its new Loyalty Programme in celebration of its 1st birthday in June.

Called D’ORÉ PRIVÉ, the Loyalty Programme offers a personalised shopping experience amongst other things, fortifies the brand’s reputation as the most exclusive luxury shopping experience of its kind in Africa, and puts it in line with the most renowned luxury department stores in the world.

An exclusive membership; the D’ORÉ PRIVÉ Loyalty card will reward customers every time they shop and will be a combination of a store card and a credit card. Each time customers spend in-store or online, points will be earned. The more points earned, the higher up in the loyalty tiers one moves.

D’ORÉ further hopes to afford its loyal customers only the best in personalised service with exclusive value-added services such as complimentary alterations and delivery, and exclusive previews to new collections, which will add to its already service-focused store environment.

D’ORÉ PRIVÉ is more than promoting the store but rather about promoting the most exclusive of clubs in the form of a lifestyle experience.
