Indie-cool comes to Sandton, and the place is jumping
Independent fashion and accessory designers flaunt their wares at a funky Sandton City concept store
Aficionados of African design will already be acquainted with Thula Sindi’s AfricaRise (https://www.instagram.com/africarisestore/) concept store that opened in Sandton City in 2019. It gives independent fashion and accessory designers a platform to show their wares without the costs associated with renting space.
We are particularly smitten with Maria McCloy’s colourful, vibrant accessories, including beaded bracelets, funky Dutch wax print-inspired sneakers, mud-cloth bags and delicate gold earrings.
