One of the fashion industry’s most forcible advocates for ethical production and sourcing, Hanneli Rupert, founded Merchants on Long, a Cape Town based concept store, and the first of its kind in Africa.  The store and e-commerce site carries avant-garde designs sourced from across Africa and features handbags from Okapi, Sawa sneakers made in the Cameroon and its own lifestyle brand.

The Grand Daddy in Kapstadt

Nicht erst seit der Fussball WM 2010 gehören Süd Afrikas Städte zu den vibrierenden Trendmetropolen dieser Welt. Insbesondere Kapstadt hat mit seinem kosmopolitischen Grossstadtleben alles zu bieten, was ein Reiseherz begehrt.

In mitten der belebten und trendigen Longstreet, in der sich Restaurants, Bars, Antiquariate und Cafés aneinanderreihen, liegt das aussergewöhnliche Hotel Grand Daddy’s. Das Gebäude existiert bereits seit mehr als 140 Jahren und verfügt über den ältesten Aufzug der Stadt, der aber immer noch bestens funktioniert. Das Moderne Interieur, das von lokalen Künstlern gestaltet wurde, verleiht dem Gebäude ein afrikanisches Flair. Wer es etwas ausgefallen mag, bezieht einen der sieben Airstreams auf dem Dach, wo oft auch kleine Konzerte und Filmabende stattfinden.

Ausserdem befindet sich das Hotel in unmittelbarer Nähe der V & A Waterfront, wo man nicht nur ausgezeichnet Essen kann, sondern auch noch einen spektakuläre Sicht auf den Tafelberg geniesst. The Greek Fishermen zum Beispiel überzeugt mit frischer mediteraner Küche, mit einem modernen Twist.

Auch Woodstock darf man sich keinesfalls entgehen lassen. Im ehemaligen Industriequartier verwandeln Kreative leerstehende Lagerhäuser, Fabrikgebäude und viktorianische Wohnhäuser in trendige Räumlichkeiten. Ateliers, Galerien, Restaurants und Cafés schiessen wie Pilze aus dem Boden. Exemplarisch für die Verwandlung steht The Old Biscuit Mill die in einer ehemaligen Keksfabrik (Nacht-) Märkte, Off-Spaces, Workshops, Designer Shops, Festivals und vieles mehr beherbergt.

Wer sich mit lokaler Designware eindecken will, dem sei zu guter Letzt auch noch ein Besuch bei den Merchants on Long empfholen. Eine wahre Schatztruhe für afrikanische Mode.

nightmazing asked:

48. Is there anything in particular that would ignite your character’s jealousy? Or does your character not get envious?

Gensui: Gensui doesn’t get jealous per say, even when it comes to romantic relationships. He gets depressive instead and tends to turn the jealousy into a pit of self loathing that’s hard to break from.

Odile: Growing up as part of the Brume Odile has some very internalized hatred and jealousy towards her so called ‘betters’ in the Pillars and Foundation. This jealousy and festering anger manifested itself into her current life goal of amassing untolds amount of money through her merchant networks and has long turned to greed. She walks a very razor thin edge with this and only time will tell if that initial jealousy won’t see her spilling over into becoming the very thing she hated.

Enla: She doesn’t share partners. Ever. Though it’s never gotten to the point where her jealousy has become a problem - mostly because she doesn’t recognize competition until her partner is actually getting physical with another person - it is still very much present. Beyond that she’s too hotheaded and self assured to get jealous about the ‘haves’ and ‘have not’s’ of life.

Sae: All. The. TIME. Perhaps the opposite of Enla, one of the few times he ISN’T covetous is with his romantic partner.

(Thanks for the ask!)
