cape town truly is a remarkable place, top designers are making their mark and the place is so laid back that even if they have to resort to printing t-shirts in the apathetic market of post-season frenzy, you can be sure that it will be fab d-e-s-i-g-n-e-r stuff. another patriotic moment, but along with our other great event world cup soccer 2010, i am completely surprised at the international response to our capacities. we were awarded the soccer bid apart, or in spite of the fact that we can’t play; and i hope it not to be a similar case with the design capital bid. far be it for me to be sceptic after pulling off 2010, but i’m interested to see how this one gets tackled.
