For decades, retail space in South Africa has been prohibitive for most local artisans due to long leases, rigid costs and equally rigid attitudes. Defying the norm, Hyde Park Corner has opened up a beautiful, creative space for the entrepreneurs of KAMERS/Makers, giving them a platform to bring their incomparably eclectic mix of creations to Joburg for the first time.
This marks the start of an exciting new trajectory for Hyde Park Corner, with some innovative concepts in the pipeline in the coming months.
KAMERS/Makers – traditionally an incredible exhibition of creative talent – has reinvented and is popping up in Hyde Park Corner!
KAMERS/Makers SPACE is a fast and fluid collective of SA’s finest Makers – carefully curated to pop-up (and down!) in any empty retail space, in just a few days.
It offers the best of both worlds for KAMERS/Makers devotees! Loads of time to shop at any time, yet with the eclectic and amazing variety of products that have made KAMERS/Makers shows so immensely popular for two decades.
• The KM SPACE is Covid-19 screened and certified – with required controls in place to regulate entry and ensure the safety of all.
• A cashless system will be in operation, with a single central pay-point for shopper convenience.
KM’s biggest SPACE yet, it will offer a vibrant mix of more than 70 local Makers – another critical step in rebuilding SA’s SME economy.
“With Level 2 now official, shoppers will, at last, be able to sip the KAMERS/Makers signature glass of bubbly whilst shopping! We’re also aiming to host ‘live’ Makers, actually making in the SPACE, so shoppers can view their goods being made,” comments KM Creative CEO, Wanda Du Toit
The Maker Mix will be changing every month to ensure non-stop variety and – always – the coolest stuff you’ve never seen.
