Running March 01-03 2013, Design Indaba Expo includes an exciting section entitled Emerging Creatives. ARTS THREAD previews a selection of designers to look out for.

Emerging Creatives covers a wide range of specialisms, including furniture & product design, fashion & textiles, graphic design, jewellery, fine art, craft and photography. Johan and Lene Botha are the creative duo behind product studio Woltemade, who design pieces which flirt between geometric and natural organic forms. Look out for Vonk Light, a sensuous handblown glass lamp and T Table, with three brass legs and wood table top.

As regards fashion, watch out for Thilana Blignaut. A recent graduate from Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion at Stellenbosch Western Cape, Thilana’s latest collection blends vintage denim with gingham and daisy flowers.
