Hundreds of stylish Joburgers descended on Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville to celebrate the second edition of House and Leisure’s Night Market, in association with Old Mutual. HL selected some of the country’s finest designers, foodies and artisans to showcase and sell their spectacular creations. Market goers were treated to welcome drinks by Scheckter Energy and sipped on a range of world-class wines courtesy of Glen Carlou while shopping for various decor, accessories and fashion items. Musicians Jared Coetzer and Sean de Beer entertained the crowd. Food stalls offered guests the opportunity to fill their tummies with delicious wraps, fusion sushi, shawarmas and sweet treats. Did you get your pic snapped in front of Old Mutual’s photo wall? Head to our Facebook page and tag yourself! See below for information about the vendors from our second night market. GLEN CARLOU About: In 2012 Glen Carlou celebrated its 25th vintage – a comparatively young estate in the South African wine industry – yet we are proud to say, we have built a reputation as one of South Africa’s leading producers. Under the ownership and management of the world-renowned Hess Family, we continue to produce wines of exceptional quality and consistency, growing from strength to strength. Since 1985, we have only had three winemakers – whose collective passion has ensured that Glen Carlou has produced consistently exceptional wines for almost three decades. For us, creating classic, award-winning wines is a wonderful and gratifying journey, but it is not the destination. Consistency, expertise and a commitment to always deliver beyond expectation is what we strive for with every bottle of Glen Carlou wine. This is why we are known as the ‘Curators of Classic Wines’.

Dynamic and driven, he later racked up a wealth of experience at the Michaelangelo Hotel in Sandton and then at a boutique hotel in Scotland. In 2004 he launched his own business specialising in handmade chocolates and wedding cakes. ‘When you are passionate about something, it isn’t work. I truly love what I do,’ says Dylan. In 2012, he joined the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship. A Thyme to Dine has since evolved its offering to chocolate-based products for retailers and catering services for corporate and private clients. Jonsson plans to export his products and start a micro brewery that produces beer containing chocolate. ‘An integral part of my five-year plan is to open a self-sustainable boutique hotel with a school that will teach chefs how to make food from seed to plate.’ Email: email@example.com Website: athymetodine.co.za AN ARTIST IS NEVER POOR About: My love for origami craft and traditional cross-stitching inspired me to create a series of aztec inspired cross-stitch jewellery pieces. I use different geometric shapes and abstract patterns in my jewellery design, which I combine with cross-stitch craft. I am also inspired by paper art. At the moment I am busy with a series of three-dimensional abstract flowers made from recycled paper.

About: Local fashion duo Paul van der Spuy and Adrian Heneke launched the first bluecollarwhitecollar store in Cape Town in 2008, followed by Johannesburg in 2010. bluecollarwhitecollar is about amazing shirts and clothing; quality garments with a great fit. There is no great vision or message, no specific target market – just clothing that makes the wearer feel good and look stylish. bluecollarwhitecollar has little to do with fashion and trends. It is rather an individual expression of what Paul and Adrian feel as they look to the past at beautifully constructed items and apply that inspiration to today’s modern looks. The store carries blue-collar (industrial worker inspired) casual shirting and white-collar (smart office worker and evening) shirts in cottons and linens. In addition, they offer a range of T-shirts and retro boardshorts, beautifully constructed ladies shirts as well as a semi-bespoke shirt service (for Joburg customers only).

CERAMIC FACTORY About: We offer a wide range of ceramic items for hotels, game lodges, interior designers and the retail industry. Specialists in glazing and firing, sculpturing, mould-making, and bisqueware. We recently launched our ‘Citizenship’ range, a collection of ceramics that celebrate both individuals and humanity. The collection was conceptualised by Ceramic Factory’s Creative Director Rial Visagie and crafted by Joe Govo. The Citizenship range is handmade from terracotta. After moulding, the terracotta is given a gentle white glaze to accentuate details and expose each piece’s individuality. It consists of two individual ranges, namely The Fro Family and The Village of the Rhino. The Fro Family celebrates the African continent and its diverse people. It celebrates creativity, pride and belief that anything is possible. Items include wine bottle holders, ice buckets and coffee mugs. The Village of the Rhino celebrates the rhinoceros: a hopeful reaction to the gory imagery associated with rhino poaching. Prices range from R135 to R1 200.

Flavours is its namesake – good food that is full of flavour. One Sunday I did a ‘pretty in pink’ party for a week-old baby girl in the morning and a 100th birthday high tea in the afternoon. Both were celebrations of life and brought home how people celebrate with food. I love that I am part of people’s happy memories when they look back on their special events – that is truly what feeds my soul.

Clothing that compliments her, rather than eclipses her. I start by finding concepts, silhouettes, details, ideas or stories, if you will, and retelling them. With each rendition it changes; adapted by me - the storyteller - to suit the audience, trend or season. I aim to provide my muse with the raw material to create her own narrative. She adds her own elements, layering it with a different tone and changes the setting from the enchanted forest to a coffee date in Greenside. And so the tale takes on a life of its own; my contribution being neither the beginning nor the end.’ SIES!isabelle is currently available in over 30 stores, including The Space and Edgars (Sandton and Melrose Arch) nationwide.
