There’s nothing else quite like it! Quite simply, that’s what sets SAADA apart. In an increasingly homogenized world where one feels trapped and contained by grey mundane conventionality, it’s the inspiring multi-coloured, out-of-the-box, spark of SAADA that gives us all a breath of fresh air.
Being dictated to about the next big thing – the must-have, what’s on pulse, what’s “right” right now – by the fashion police, all of it doomed to be eyebrow-raisingly passé and hopelessly out-of-touch a season from now, bewilders us… Rubbish! SAADA give the proverbial and very elegant middle finger to those rules – what’s cool today leaves us cold, and if it’s “hot right now” then it’s likely to burn you later.
Unlike other events that focus on a singular contemporary, innately transient moment, the annual SAADA Expos – one in Cape Town at the start of each year, and one in Johannesburg in Spring – are a boutique-style celebration of the vast history of design – past, present and future – and not simply a contemporary moment thereof. This assures the extraordinary variety of exhibits: each unique item on show tells its own story, while at the same time is a piece in the great and glorious puzzle of design through time.
