Instamania, a bazaar showcasing instapreneurs, was held on Friday, the 13th of October, from 5 pm to 11 pm. It took place at Arbab Al Heraf which is located on Yamamah Street, near Cup and Couch cafe.
Arbab Al Heraf (Master of Crafts) is a cafe/movement launched by a group of youngsters making an effort to preserve and spread the beauty of art and music in Saudi Arabia. The gallery organises music events, workshops, and other events related to showcasing artistic talents.
The bazaar was organised by Trendsetters. Trendsetters is an online clothing brand set up by Areeb Younus, a budding young man with a creative side.
Brands like Glamour Beauty Jeddah, Asterix Art, Retro Shop Jeddah, Rina’s Food and more were given an opportunity to market themselves and sell their products.
Apart from that, the event featured a spellbinding show of live painting by the artist known as Asterix Art.
The bazaar set up consisted of paintings, customised lettering, posters, bookmarks, abaayas, customised t-shirts, mugs and other unique items. More than fifty people from across Jeddah visited the bazaar.
The aim is to host more such events in order to shine light on the hidden gems of Jeddah. Any artist or business looking to set up a booth in future events can reach out to Trendsetters, or Areeb Younus himself on Instagram.
