I'm sure the V&A is one of the most stunning waterfronts in the world ~ with a backdrop that includes Signal Hill & Table Mountain it has a spectacular setting & as a destination, it's a major tourist magnet. The waterfront was opened in 1993 (I stand to correction on this date) & we had a store there called Wylde Oscar, a fabulous clothing store selling shirts, dresses & much in between...sort of twisted classics ...very popular. We couldn't maintain though as the rental was exorbitant & trade in winter pulled us down badly, so we shut shop & moved onto other things for a while. And then bluecollarwhitecollar was born & it continues in good retail health ~ we're so grateful for that.
