Southern Guild: A New Wave Exhibition

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring VIDEO Romy Wilson IMAGE Steve Marais

An exciting new exhibition has just opened at Southern Guild in Cape Town’s Woodstock.

The exhibition features works from almost 40 talented local designers under the age of 40, a group that was shortlisted after the gallery put out a call for new work earlier this year.


A selection of the designers from left to right: Chuma Maweni, Mishal Adam Weston, Ashlee Ainsley Lloyd, Nehanda Magan, Denny Mo and Faatimah Mohamed-Luke.

The result? A beautifully curated collection of limited-edition designs by some of the most exciting names in the industry.

Watch our video above as we visit the gallery and give you a sneak peek of the pieces on show, as well as chat to Southern Guild co-founder Trevyn McGowan about the exhibition.

A New Wave runs until 23 September 2016 at Southern Guild, which is located at Unit 1, 10–16 Lewin Street, Woodstock, Cape Town. The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 10am – 5pm. Please note, the show will be closed on 23 and 24 August 2016. For more information, visit
