S.A.M (South African Market), established in 2013, acts as a platform to connect prime homegrown fashion, furniture, jewellery and décor designer retailers with local and tourist markets. Situated in a loft space on Bree Street, S.A.M presents the most recent and accomplished work in a dynamic environment. S.A.M is set up so that designers are able to have their own store-within-a-store. Curated collections offer unique pieces of local design of unrivaled international standard.
Some of S.A.M.’s achievements over the past year include:
• Growing from a collective of 45 to 90 designers • Taking part in the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival – and offering international exposure to a number of local designer (Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwell, popped by for a spot of shopping!) • Being featured in Sweden’s Next Top model show (a full episode was shot in the space)
Today, S.A.M celebrates its 1st Birthday and invites you to join in on the fun of people-watching of First Thursday, a phenomenon that is taking Cape Town by storm, while browsing exclusive designer collections.
First Thursday is a public event that’s free to attend for all to attend. Art galleries and cultural events around Cape Town’s central city are set to, once again, stay open until 9pm or later as per the first Thursday of every month, allowing anyone to explore the city on foot and experience the cultural wealth this city has to offer.
