“Being completely inspired by the book and its concept we decided to extend the street style theme into our upcoming pod installation, Street Style,” explains Kerstin Eser, décor consultant at the Design Centre. “Being situated along the fanwalk, it seems only natural to take inspiration from a book about inner-city street culture and interpret it into an interior setting, we also take pride in celebrating and showcasing the incredibly vibrant local talent that South Africa has to offer.”
