After matriculating at Pietersburg High School she studied B.ConsumerScience.ClothingRetailManagement at The University of Pretoria where she graduated in 2010. This degree gave solid knowledge not only in fashion design but also business management and marketing, 2 very important factors when having your own business.

Since then she has worked for reputable fashion and bridal companies such as Guess and Enzoani before starting The Wedding Collective in 2016. Mari has travelled the world finding the best wedding dress collections for our bridal shop, and has even tried on incredible wedding dresses at Kleinfeld’s in New York, the home of Say Yes To The Dress!
