Lehza Vintage is an online fashion boutique specialising in vintage and pre-loved contemporary designer women’s clothing, handbags, jewellery and accessories. The online store was founded in 2010 by Lehza van der Merwe and is based in Strand, just outside Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
Lehza has developed a distinct aesthetic for her collection, focusing only on high quality, timeless vintage and designer pieces for the discerning woman who doesn’t want to spend a fortune, but is looking for a stylish find that will last for many years to come. Every item is uniquely hand-selected and thus the collection is constantly evolving. Lehza prides herself on her friendly, professional service and caters to many loyal clients across the whole of South Africa, from Durban to Johannesburg, as well as worldwide.
Almost every week, new items are added to the collection and clients can sign up to the mailing list to be notified on new arrivals. Clients can expect an exclusive selection of vintage dresses, blouses, skirts, jackets, coats, bags, wallets, belts, shoes, earrings, necklaces, brooches, bangles, rings, scarves and more. The store also carries some vintage and modern designer wear, not uncommonly including luxury brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Armani, Givenchy, MCM, Christian Dior, Prada, Fendi and Max Mara, among others.
Lehza holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities (majoring in Psychology) from Stellenbosch University. She started Lehza Vintage as a side project whilst in her first year at SU, however the brand quickly gained a large and loyal following and she now works full time on her business from her home in Strand. She loves anything vintage or antiques related, entrepreneurship, books, animals, art, fashion and spending time with loved ones.
