Yay! Our second instalment of Where To Go and What To Wear is here! Gallery exhibits, shop launches, art and culture news and everything in between. Let’s see what you can’t miss this weekend in Jozi.
VISIONS OF FREEDOM free film screening at 7pm. The month-long Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival is curated by Kalashnikovv Gallery and the Constitution Hill heritage precinct who are hosting all of the festival’s events.
GALLERY MOMO presents Mupia-Mupia. Congolese artist Maurice Mbikayi’s exhibitions opens tonight. The works are inspired by obsolete technological components, and in return create fashionable items influenced by Sapeur culture.
WEAR: Opt for a relaxed look if you’re going to be strutting your style around Jozi galleries tonight. Comfort is key. Think midi skirts, bobby socks and creepers. Take inspiration from the Sapeur culture while you’re at it.
GIN AND JUICE The return at The Court in Melville. Gin and Juice presents the future of pop-ups. You can expect great music, drinks and great street food.
OYSTER WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL at Montecasino. If oysters and champers is your thing, don’t miss this.
WEAR: These events are quite popular and considering the street culture, go for your best street style ensembles. Check the blog’s street style posts for inspiration. Get creative and express your unique style on Fashion Friday.
GALLERY WALKABOUT with Hannelie Coetzee chatting about her Watermense/Waterpeople exhibit in association with Lizamore and Associates
GOLIATH COMEDY CLUB at Melrose Arch with Lazola Gola, Mark Banks and more. If you’re in the mood for a good laugh after a crazy week, relax and enjoy these great artists.
WEAR: For an evening event, go for shimmering sequins and shiny metallic fabrics. You can never be over-dressed, but you can be under-dressed and no-one wants to be that chick.
KOOS KOMBUIS at The Good Luck Bar. You don’t want to miss this legendary South African alternative artist live.
WEAR: Channel the 90s, bitch. Koos Kombuis aka André lê Roux du Toit made his success in the late 80s and 90s so you can just as well go with the flow. Think velvet, chokers and crop tops. You can always cover up that crop with a lovely oversized jacket. See how to wear it here.
