About Us

Meet Josie Devine

My passion for quality fashion started at a young age, my biggest inspiration was my beloved “Oumie” who always looked her best every day, even when she was staying home and baking for us vetkoek.

With her in mind, I opened Kikuti Couture’s online boutique in October 2020.  We have had a boutique for years at our beauty spa, but I wanted to afford all my friends, family and customers the opportunity to be able to purchase stylish and original ensembles for any occasion at the click of a button. 

Being almost 6 ft tall, it is important to me that our clothing range caters for all shapes, sizes and heights. It is such a pleasure to work with hand-picked local designers who have our customers’ needs in mind and tailor the designs to suit our requirements.

This led me to consult with a local couturier to develop our own style and label named Mrembo which we launched in 2022. We are one of the very few South African boutiques to offer extra-length exclusives.

The “Kikuti” in our name, Kikuti Couture, is the Swahili word for “chance” or “opportunity”. This resonates with me, as I believe every person should be given the chance or opportunity to shine. We offer professional guidance on what will suit your style and body type, it’s our vision to ensure that our shoppers feel gorgeous wearing our brands.
