The Marie Claire Trunk Show, SA’s most fashionable pop-up shopping party brought to you by J.C. Le Roux, is back after a two-year hiatus. This year promises to be better (and more bubbly) than ever with a brilliant group of designers to shop from, as well as world-class local entertainment.

The fashion

Once you’ve had your first glass of J.C. Le Roux bubbly and a snack, head over to Vintage Lover to purchase some highly Instagrammable pieces. Sam Star has a gorgeous range of kitten heels that would pair perfectly with the minimal-centric easy-wearing pieces from Lunar. If you’re here for a floral and a flare, Me and You Clothing is a must, as well as Urban Huntress for a more bohemian outlook. With product names like ‘Freakum Sequins Dress’ and ‘Ritual Night Leather Vest’, Revolt Clothing is bound to serve plenty a glitzy grungy statement. Other designers to shop include Totally Polished, Style by Shalley, Le Borgeous, Moonyu, and Dry Co. If you haven’t already discovered the delicate, dreamy, wildly desirable lingerie pieces by Nette Rose, you’re in for a major treat. Since everything creative director Gabbi Kannemeyer touches turns to gold, be sure to swing by her stall too.

The music

Keeping the mood alive will be White Nite, Abby Nurock, and Lulo Cafe. If there’s anyone who understands the needs of a local audience, it’s White Nite. He’s played CTIJF, Rocking the Daisies, Oppikoppi, Earthdance, Ramfest, Synergy, and more. Expect a little bit of house, a little bit of disco, downtempo beats, Bass, and plenty of humour: the short bio on his site reads, “That white boy is my favourite DJ in the whole dam world.” – Julius Malema.

Abby Nurock could probably give you some styling advice before she starts her set. The DJ is also a jewellery designer, her other passions including cats and vinyl.  She likes to think of herself as a purist, exploring her favourite genres (dance and house) to their very depths.

Lulo Cafe bet on himself when he dropped out of a hotel management course to pursue DJing full time. It paid off: his mashups of house with everything from traditional music to hip hop have been heard across South Africa and beyond, namely Botswana, Namibia and Lesotho. He also has two albums to his name.
