As much as we ladies love to shop there’s no doubt that shopping in a mall can be a stressful affair. Traipsing from shop to shop, feet sore, legs tired – sometimes there’s nothing worse. But what if we told you that Cape Town now has a completely different way to shop – a way that includes bubbly and snacks? Yes, we know, you would jump with glee. Well ladies, the great news is that thanks to the lovely lasses at Cape-a-Porter you can now shop for unique, Italian fashion and accessories in a relaxing environment while sipping on a glass of bubbly and tucking into delicious snacks!

The brainchild of fashionista Sylvia Pachulski, The Cape-a-Porter pop-up shop events take place at a different, rather fabulous location each time and offer ladies and their friends a relaxed and chic environment in which to shop. The events often take place at wine estates and other unique venues in Cape Town and are a welcome breath of fresh air in the mall rat age.
