At Satori we could wax lyrical about Cape Town for days, and this is not because it is our home town and we are slightly biased (although it may just be our adopted home!). The same rings true for wellness – going on ad nauseam about its virtues and how no real trip to Africa is complete without experiencing a little happy healing!
That is precisely why we are so excited about our newest and most unique wellness offering – time spent with one of the top up and coming names in the fashion world as well as one of the most elegant woman of the industry.
Meet Kelly Mara Withey of Maison Mara and Jackie Burger of Salon 58!
Both of these incredibly inspiring women, to paraphrase Eleanor Roosevelt, will help inspire you to believe in the beauty of every dream through fashion and self-belief in both your inner and outer beauty.
Welcome to Salon 58
The dream of one of the most motivating women in business you will ever meet – Jackie Burger. For her, being able to greet and welcome you to Salon 58 is the culmination of many years of her own self-exploration. In the words of Jackie herself – “Consider it the prized stamp in the passport of my life, one that has been filled with challenges, opportunities and a multitude of personal and emotional rewards. The route I have taken is dotted with inscriptions of beauty, discovery and personal growth and has led me to become what I had always hoped”.
Join Jackie as she plays personal host and style advisor at your own tête-à-tête. These personal style consultations provide clients with the exploration of needs and desires for self-expression, not only to enhance personal style but also to cultivate a sense of identity that extends beyond clothes. One-on-one consultations are by appointment with Jackie and can be curated according to your every whim and desire.
Curated fashion and lifestyle experience with Maison Mara
Set in a heritage building dating back to the 1800’s in De Waterkant, the three-storey boutique is a work of design in itself. Kelly Mara Withey opened Maison Mara’s doors on 12 January 2015 after falling in love with Cape Town during several visits to the city (which we no doubt are sure you will do too!). After seeing that there was a gap in the market for high-end international luxury brands with an edge, the idea for Maison Mara took root.
The store offers a sumptuous experience on each floor with lovingly restored wooden floors, a Gaudi-like staircase and bespoke finishes in the marbled bathroom that has been transformed into Maison Mara’s skincare room. Although the focus is on international fashion, most of which are not available elsewhere in South Africa, Maison Mara also presents the best in local design, featuring a luxury collaboration with award-winning jewellery brand PICHULIK as well as designs from local brands Okapi, Blac, perfumes from House of Gozdawa and AAKS.
Kelly, Maison Mara and Satori Africa invites you to experience the best in fashion, accessories, beauty and lifestyle products with a glass of champagne in hand, or whatever epicurean indulgence your heart desires, and have a one-one-one experience like no other with Kelly as she offers a curated shopping experience.
