THE CLOSET happening on the 26th and 27th of November is the brainchild of Aura Café and Elke. It is Colombo's homegrown pop up clothing and accessories market. Supporting and encouraging local designers, this really is one shopping market festival that is unmissable. 

It will be a two day event, hosted by Aura Café on Bullers Lane, by popular demand. Pop-up stores and markets are incredibly happening around the world and are everywhere at the moment, as they offer budding entrepreneurs a great opportunity to win more customers and publicise their brand. 

With different established and up and coming designers showcasing on both days shoppers will find a wide selection of men's and women's clothing, both casual and formal, resort wear, shoes and jewellery, there will be plenty to browse over! 

With more participants than ever, this gaggle of up-and-coming designers are bursting with creativity and talent, developing unique shopping spaces that highlight their brand aesthetic. Check out their latest collections and laze away your weekend, whilst enjoying some chilled tunes and great food! 

Aura Café will also run their new menu with a wider selection of main fare, a range of creamy pastas and Eastern inspired rice options.
