Fazielah’s top three weekday picks in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
If you thought the past weekend was thrilling with the Manchester United vs Ajax Cape Town football match, wait until you see what the coming week, July 23 to 26, 2012, has in store for you.
Fashionistas, the très chic event you’ve been waiting for all year is finally here! Put your best foot forward with the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
Paying homage to the theme “icons”, couture legends, including Gavin Rajah, Craig Port and Hip Hop will showcase their Spring/Summer 2012 collections. They will be joined by emerging designers Rachel De Mart, Adriaan Kuiters and Ruald Rheeder.

The thing I love most about working in the city centre is the emergence of many fabulous organic markets on nearly every street, where I can get a tasty, wholesome lunch.
The new kid-on-the-market-block is the Wednesday “Little Saturday” Market at the Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village in Green Point.
From delicious fast foods, including freshly grilled prawns and decadent pancakes, to the live music and craft beers on tap, this market is a must-do this week!
