Fiona Payne, Owner of The Glass Slipper has been working in the fashion retail industry for more than 20 years. Fiona began working in prestigious high end fashion stores in Hyde park and Sandton,Johannesburg selling famous brands and managing stores. She later proceeded to managing and buying for the larger well known chain stores in South Africa. In 2005 Fiona launched The Glass Slipper and it has been in operation since. Fiona loves the diversity of fashion and caters for various personality types, offering you from Cinderella like garments to more edgy gothic ones.
With regard to formal dresses & wedding dresses, Fiona works with only certain overseas manufacturers, whom make the dresses, she does not have the dresses for you to try on. It is more cost effective for our dressmakers to make the dresses on order than to keep them in a shop. Unfortunately, similar to famous brands, replicas and cheap look a likes are widespread. Many manufacturers try to copy the dresses & many individuals try to sell them and you can land up having a disastrous experience. Throughout Fiona’s professional career, she has established relations with the original and the best manufacturers.
The Glass Slipper was the first original importer of our fine corsets, hence “The Home Of Corsets”. Our corsets are manufactured with only the best of fabric and firm boning. Fiona has noticed a trend where others are selling corsets that look the same as ours on the computer screens, but are made with inferior fabric & pliable boning. Please bare in mind there is always a reason for a price. The purpose of a corset is not only to look beautiful, but to also function as a waist reducer where enough force can be exerted to give you that hourglass figure. This can not be maintained with the cheap look alike replicas, they tear & bend.
Our showroom of corsets is always available for you to come and try on, please call to make an appointment.
Fiona’s profession is fashion retail and unlike a hobby, she provides a professional service with quality products. Your emails will be answered ASAP , you can contact her telephonically or WhatsApp her during working hours & your orders arrive on time. She promises to give you the service & quality you expect and if you are unhappy, she will do everything in her power to fix the problem to make you happy.
“My philosophy is clear: good service, quality and a smile on your face. Making you happy makes me happy”
