You know that feeling, when you just fall in love with something right away? That's exactly how I felt when I first walked into The District Six Store. Everything about this beautiful little shop in Kreuzberg is so incredibly charming and inspiring!
If you are looking for authentic South African design that represents fair trade, sustainability, handmade beautiful artistry and so much more, The District Six Store is the place to go. The store's carefully curated collection of goodies from local South African designers is just absolutely gorgeous in every way.
I have been very lucky to work with the store and its lovely owner, Caroline and it has been a blast. I was very excited to be part of Caroline's Advent Calendar on Instagram in December, for which we did a series of product shots, including all of the people connected to the store in a special way. It was so much fun photographing all of these beautiful products and people(go ahead and check that out over here if you haven't already). Great project.
More recently I got a chance to photograph Caroline and her store, which was so much fun and I am more than excited about what that little shoot will be used for...more on that later!;)
So I wanted to share a little portrait of this wonderful gem of a store with you on my blog today. Here we go, meet Caroline and The District Six Store.....
