Various Roots Events

Providing a platform for creatives to showcase their work with each other, and draw in diverse, new audiences to learn about more artists from their community.

Visual Art + Music + Dance + Fashion

Our events showcase artists of various mediums simultaneously, including both still and live exhibitions & music performances. Our hope is that attendees and exhibitors both walk away with new memories, friends, and most importantly, future collaborators.

The Seppis Portrait Studio - "Royal Heritage"

Giving us all a chance to feel royal, one of Cape Town's finest editorial fashion photography duos, The Seppis, created a concept featuring the upcoming F/W collaboration garment from Various Roots & Unknown Union. The Seppis grabbed guests off of the dance and exhibition floors during the 2018 Creatives Mashup Vol. 2 event and sat them for a portrait in one of our unreleased garments.
