THE MARKET: Corner Store CPT with Neo Baepi

In order for Africa’s fashion industries to grow, we need to do more to connect with consumers encourage more of those who can to buy local. As much as we may talk about buying locally designed and made garments, ask the average citizen and one problem they have is a simple “we don’t know where to start”.

In THE MARKET, we showcase the African brick & mortar retail landscape. With there being over 20 million square meters of retail space in Sub-Saharan Africa alone, there are definitely locally owned brands operating out of stores in need of support and we at REconnecteD have set out to show our viewers a few hidden gems.

Next up we go to a flagship streetwear store in Cape Town founded by a collective of the county’s most influential independent streetwear brands, Corner Store CPT.
