From couture dresses to everyday streetwear Joburg’s original urban precinct, 44 Stanley, has become the destination for unique fashion boutiques and local design labels.

Stop in at Black Coffee home to the iconic South African design label headed by Jacques van der Watt. The label recently presented their smart new gender neutral range, made up of oversized and nonconformist shapes that are structured by the wearer. The Black Coffee store also incorporates Love Jozi, the T-shirt and home accessories company whose unique designs have become must-have items for locals and Joburg visitors.

A few doors down you’ll find Pichulik’s flagship Joburg store. On sale at the store are Pichulik's signature bold accessories line, plus exclusive fashion collections that are not available online. The Threads Project next door is a collaborative showcase for uniquely South African and authentic fashion, lifestyle and art pieces made by a range of local designers. Around the corner, Hse of Bespoke by Waseefa Hutton provides classic, elegant women's clothing as well as innovative hair wraps and clutches.
