A Fashion Design Graduate of Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2007, Celeste Lee Arendse started Selfi in 2009 in Cape Town, South Africa. After working forwww.kluk.co.za in 2008 she became a Elle New talent finalist in 2009 and from there ventured into creating her own brand.
Inspired by architecture, forms and patterns in nature, each garment is designed to represent an innovative twist toward existing women’s apparel.
The name Selfi was created from the word self which stems from the dreamlike, juvenile part of the self which remains dormant to most. The idea was to unlock this state through playing with pattern, form and shape.
