Shop local at Menlyn

For the fashion-forward, trendsetting community with a love for all things South African, this Centre has become a shopping hotspot

Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, recently named the home of Project Runway South Africa, is designed to offer a unique shopping experience, with more than 300 stores spread over 17 000 square metres. As the largest mall in Africa, it comes as no surprise that Menlyn houses over 21 stores that focus solely on local designers and brands, such as Young Designers Emporium, Burgundy Fly, Freedom of Movement, Blue Collar White Collar and Tread + Miller.

“As the biggest fashion hub on the continent, we are all about supporting local talent and business,” says Olive Ndebele, general manager at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. “We want to be the springboard that many of our young designers need to become the next international fashion label. Our foot traffic through the walkways gives these local brands the visibility they need to grow.”

As local designers, prints and brands receive more international exposure, Menlyn Park Shopping Centre aims to be the one-stop venue of choice for all your fashion requirements. The variety of stores offers you everything you need for different types of occasions, from seasonal everyday wardrobe staples to modern, sophisticated evening wear.

“The international spotlight has been shifted to South African fashion and now it’s time to let our rich tapestry of culture, design, fashion and people shine,” says Ndebele. “We need to capitalise on this as we see more of our labels being showcased in New York, London, Paris and on many other celebrated catwalks.”

Supporting locally produced items sets Menlyn Park Shopping Centre apart from its competitors, making it South Africa’s shopping destination of choice – a sure win for both tourism and retail in the country.
