Bay Harbour market

Ever wondered where you could get good food, Great affordable fashion and brilliant hand crafted leather pieces all in one place?  Well then you probably haven’t been introduced to the ever vibing Harbour bay Market in Hout Bay, Cape Town. 

I was invited to attend a tourism event at the market a few weeks back and I honestly don’t regret taking the breezy drive through the senic route to the great harbour location in Hout Bay.  On Arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff and immediately wondered off into the fashion side of things first ofcourse!  Everything from vintage pieces to cute statement crops and basically everything else you’d want to wear to any upcoming music festivals.  Each vender bringing its own kind of freshness to the space and the prices are really worth your find.  Some goods are even hand made.  I know right!?  Fresh, affordable and Hand Crafted!  What more do you need in a good days shopping?  FOOD obviously! The market serves up quite a number of good food choices where you can get anything from light finger foods like sushi, Chilly poppers and many other assorted savouries to the most delicious Chicken Wraps and Pizza! The market even has several tables in and around the market where you can eat your food and enjoy live entertainment from local musicians and artists.  And if you’re a Sweet lover like most of us, you’re gonna love the sweet treats on sale.  Assorted Fudge, Caramel Pancakes, organic waffles and even the best gluten , sugar and wheat free cakes. 
With that said, I think the Harbour bay market is definitely one of the best markets in town and you all should check it out sooner or later.

Follow the market on FACEBOOK to get more details
Below are a few pictures we snapped at the market and DO keep an eye out for our YOUTUBE video, coming soon.
Have a great week you all.

Spree Spring/Summer 2014

Last week South Africa’s leading online retailer ‘’ hosted their infamous seasonal lookboard event and this time it was to bring in their latest Spring Summer 2014 collection called “Spree Boutique”.

The fast growing online store has been around a while now and every season they come forth with an even better installation than the last.   More intense, but also just the right amount of fun to keep it playful and leave us all in ooohs and aaahhhhs.  Being in this industry, most of the ‘Fashion ‘events we attend are similar.  A brand trying to do the same kind of different as everyone else.  However Spree never fails to tell us some kind of story through what they send out on the models, walking the show.   I unfortunately wasn’t able to attend the press briefing before the actual event to hear what exactly Creative Director ‘Chris Viljoen’ and Fashion Producer 'Deon Redman' were trying to bring across to guests, although I’m pretty sure everybody took something good and inspiring from it.  I find that having a creative process, finding inspiration and then processing that into art is so much more than just throwing good fashion together. For me Spring should be fun, Colourful and light weight.  Exactly what Local Designers Thula Sindi, Gert Johan Coetzee, Kluk CGDT, Marianne Fassier and Clive Rundle of the "Spree Boutique" collection , showcased on the night.  Good Quality garments for men & women and also from well-established SA designers now brought to you on SA’s fast growing online space  I really admire the brand and what they’re doing to change and continuously evolve fashion into what we as fashion enthusiasts enjoy every season as well as their fast delivery service everybody is raving about.   

Spree hosted us at the perfectly located Brydun Gallery on Buitengracht street in Boo Kaap.  The all white Gallery was set with accents of spring and pinths which models rotated on as guests and photographers formed a paparazzi crowd and started snapping pictures of the beautiful installation.   It’s been a while seeing everyone, so it kind of turned into the night out someone else had planned for us.  Drinks on tap as well as finger foods to keep us happy, not to mention the obsession that is social printing genius, Nifty250 (gotta love those guys).
Below are a few sourced pictures from SDR Photography
 we are currently experiencing some faults with uploading our event video but will post a link as soon as possible.

 In the mean time, enjoy spring and take care!
