Thursday was this week’s busiest evening and featured a duo of design-centric events. Dala Décor‘s Deep and Seema Gill held a spring launch party at Dala’s warehouse on Benton Road. The industrial space, awash in South East Asian antique and reclaimed furniture, was given a modern facelift specifically for this event. The media-heavy event featured the attendance of City TV‘s Daniel Pillai and Veronica Chail, among others.
Meanwhile, the Spoke Club played host to some of the city’s best and brightest for its celebration of Uncrate Africa. As part of Holt’s H Project, the Uncrate Africa boutique showcases unique and socially-responsible pieces from Rwanda, Kenya, and the Maasai Mara as curated by Alexandra Weston. Also in attendance at this even: Sarah Slean, Galen Weston, and DANNIJO designers Jodie and Danielle Snyder.
