What you'll do

I will meet you on Long Street and will take you on a unique fashion walking tour. This is a first in Cape Town! Let me introduce you to at least three African vendors and show you the diversity of local fashion & design. You will engage with a tailor, a leather designer and a jewelry maker. They will each explain their craft to you and you'll visit their little hidden workshops. Our tour will take you through inner CBD (not further than Strand Street and Greenmarket Square area), so it is not strenuous at all. The walk will allow you to immerse yourself in the African atmosphere of downtown Cape Town. Welcome to take photographs! I will wrap up the tour by inviting you for a special coffee experience: taste Senegalese coffee at Khadim's Coffee Shop! Here as well, I know the team of food entrepreneurs personally and will introduce you. My tour aims to give more exposure to the local vendors. Many do not have the skills or capacity to gain publicity and sales opportunities for their small businesses. At the same time, you will leave inspired by connecting with them!
