Just Teddy Unveiled in Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton

I recently attended the launch of the fine boutique pâtisserie and boulangerie Just Teddy in Nelson Mandela Square. The event was spectacular, with belly dancers showing off their mystical moves, which mesmerized those in attendance.

Just Teddy is renowned for having redefined heritage haute cuisine, curating a fashion-inspired fusion of Parisian delights fused with Middle Eastern flair. Now, visitors to Nelson Mandela Square can savour and experience the luxury café dining and world-class confectionery creations that accompany Just Teddy’s signature savoir-faire, with a new dining destination that was unveiled recently in Africa’s richest square mile.

The emerald of Nelson Mandela Square, Just Teddy, takes its Middle Eastern flavour even further.  The décor was inspired by the chic decadence of Dubai, offering purveyors of fine banqueting everything the brand is renowned for, and more, now with a sumptuous dinner menu added to the bespoke experience. Additionally, a champagne bar and semifreddo station will add to the exclusive artistry of the Nelson Mandela Square experience.

Forever 21 opened its doors in Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg this past Saturday, 17 October 2015. I was invited to the media launch last week, and found other “fashionistas” who were as eager as I, to get a first glance at the merchandise on offer.

I would say Forever 21, as the name suggests, is aimed at the teenage to late 20’s market, with some items geared towards the older age groups. The prices are very attractive and affordable for most items. There are some statements pieces that retail for around R450, such as this little number that I have my eye on.
