A cracker of a gift guide - Zimkita of Blaquepearl's Wishlist

‘Tis the season, and all that! So we thought we’d connect with some of our creative directors, past and present – as well as some of our imminent CoLab designers – on what’s on their festive season wish lists. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, this gorgeously curated selection might inspire you for an upcoming occasion, or just a special treat for yourself. As Dorothy Day famously said, “The best things to do with the best things in life is to give them away.”

She was onto something Ms Day!

Blaquepearl Lifestyle

As one-half of the Blaquepearl Lifestyle team, Zimkita Sidumo shares her Christmas wish list with us. Together with studio partner Siyabesho Thutha, they’re all set to ignite our CoLab exhibits as one of our feature designers. Their authentic South African style offers an energetic and distinctive flavour to the show.
