Presenting Marise van der Westhuysen Face of Hsc 2018


House of superior clothing has been dressing Woman of all ages, shapes and sizes for 20 years. There is no occasion that we cannot find a dress for and finding that perfect style and colour for each unique and wonderful woman has been our passion since the beginning, in 1998. This was exactly what happened when Marise van der Westhuysen walked through our doors, in search of her perfect Matric farewell dress!  With the help of our specialized team she soon found the dress of her dreams, and the same could be true for you!


Marise van der Westhuysen was crowned Face of House of Superior Clothing on the 1st of October 2018. Since then, we have had our first Photo and Video shoot with this gorgeous and ambitious young woman! She proved to be a natural in front of the camera wearing some of the newest styles for the up coming Matric farewell dances happening early 2019!  So in this post we are taking the opportunity to share some of the stunning photos with you.

We also took some time to get to know our stunning Model in the Making. We asked her a few questions and she happily gave us, and you our readers, an insight into her life, and an opportunity to get to know her better.
