Why choose us?

We’re More Affordable


Graduation is expensive, with some Universities charging R370 for the privilege of renting a gown for only a few hours. At Apara Gown, you can rent for only a fraction of the cost, or purchase and keep them for life.


There Are No Queues


You’ve waited years for this day – don’t spoil it waiting for forever in a queue. Choose Apara Gown and get your gowns delivered directly to your front door!


You Can Enjoy it for Longer


If you’re renting, you can keep your gown for up to 3 days, and if you’ve purchased – it’s yours! When graduation is over, why not wear your gown out to the restaurant, or save it for an easy party theme!


Keep it as a Memento


What better way is there to remember your student days than with your graduation attire? When the time comes, you can even pass it on to your children on their special day


You Can Personalise It


If you’ve bought, it’s yours to do with as you chose, so after the ceremony why not decorate your gown and mortarboard with personal messages from friends and family!


You Can Get that Perfect Photo


With 3 days rental, you can take the time to get that perfect photo with family at home, or wait until the sun’s out. No compromises!


Feel Confident In The Quality


Some universities and suppliers are still renting attire from 15 years ago. Don’t let a faded gown or dirty mortarboard ruin your special moment, and purchase from us instead


Make a Bit on the Side


Don’t feel like keeping your robes forever? Then why not purchase them and sell them to a friend or a family member who’s graduating as well!
