On Friday 28th August, a stunning new KM SPACE opened next to Nespresso in the Upper Mall of Hyde Park Corner.
KM’s biggest SPACE yet, it offers 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.
KM Creative CEO, Wanda Du Toit is typically frank regarding Covid-19’s effect on SA’s beloved artisan ‘up-market’… “We had to fight back – on behalf of the hundreds of SME artisans who have come to depend on our platform… And fight with every ounce of our entrepreneurial energy!”
So KAMERS/Makers re-envisioned SA’s battered retail industry… and found an ingenious response to their business’s lockdown let-down!
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.
And if you can’t get to a KM SPACE, here’s the good news: over 10,000 stunning products and exciting special offers are available 24/7… online at www.kamers.co.za.
Keep an eye on @kamersvol on Facebook & Instagram for a glimpse of the Makers and their creations coming soon to the Hyde Park Corner Space.
