Fuelling Cape Town’s creativity at Design Indaba Expo 2013: photos
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.
The Cape Town International Convention Centre was abuzz with designers, interior decorators, architects, fashionistas, photographers, artists and students at the 2013 Design Indaba Expo on Friday 1 March, 2013.
Exhibitors, including bluecollarwhitecollar and The Green Shack, fuelled by creativity at this year’s home-grown showcase, displayed their best works for thousands of Expo attendees and Design Indaba conference delegates. The Expo ran until Sunday 3 March, 2013.
While fashion was front and centre at the Expo, featuring up-and-coming designers under the Cape Town Fashion Council umbrella at the DStv Events Arena, the Food Truck Stop, a first for this fabulous event, was a roaring hit!
Capetonian favourites, including ice-cream crafters The Creamery, hot Mexican bistro El Burro, French confectioner Ma Mere Maison and Italian restaurant Limoncello, had Expo attendees queuing for their tasty delights.
This year’s Expo had a special World Design Capital 2014 stand, which allowed visitors to share in the excitement of this upcoming prestigious title and year-long celebration of creativity.
