Dreaming about what to wear when you finally leave the house? How about taking a virtual outing with the Google Arts & Culture Project. With this amazing initiative you can visit one of South Africa’s top galleries or art institutions.
And what’s even more exciting, The Changing Room has put together some stunning looks to ensure you put your best foot forward —whether its a virtual vernissage with your friends or a real life playdate later in winter.
South Africa’s gorgeous galleries have also taken steps to share their treasures with us and we would like to highlight these “local is lekker” options to all our Changing Room customers.
