Mini LaMinx African Fashions – Capetown

One of South Africa’s most independent successful textile designers is Cape Town’s Heather Moore, known primarily by her catchy brand name Skinny LaMinx. Heather uses Scandi-influenced shapes and colors but with an African twist: local flora and fauna. You can check out her Etsy shop  for beautiful tea towels, bags, and yardage. For kids, however, she has a wonderful range called Mini Laminx. Right now she is stocking smock dresses and aprons. On her own website, she also shows baby onesies and t-shirts in her fab prints. What’s special is that she uses organic cotton and non-baby colors like chocolate and olive green. If you make it to Cape Town, Heather has a shop on Bree Street in an area sprouting with cafes and design destinations.
