Fashion figurehead Marianne Fassler is made over as a live Tretchikoff masterpiece


After two decades in the fashion business, Marianne Fassler is arguably one of South Africa’s most original and enduring designers. Lorna meets this exotic artist in her studio and they talk fashion and how South Africa is a constant source of inspiration to her and at the creative core of everything she does. Marianne has always been an avid fan and collector of iconic and prolific artist Tretchikoff - she shows Lorna the room dedicated to him in her house. It is no surprise then when we hear that she is going to be made over as a Tretchikoff masterpiece for a major exhibit of his works. Lorna is lucky enough to join De Kat magazine on a behind the scenes shoot with Marianne who is styled to look like a Tretchikoff painting. Then it’s time to get glamed up and head to the grand opening of the Tretchikoff exhibition at the Iziko South African National Gallery in Cape Town. Marianne of course arrives dressed in an outfit designed and inspired by her favourite Tretchikoff painting.
