Meet the #CWsquad, including three strong and dynamic, local female faces… they are Nadia Jaftha, Aqeelah Harron Ally and Paula Lakay! We are very excited to embark on this journey with them, as homegrown, Cape Town-based, social icons. Growing up, they all visited and created memories at Canal Walk, whether it was meeting school friends for a Friday movie, finding their matric dance dress, going on a first date, shopping to style their latest blog post, or even visiting The Wedding Show to plan their big day. Canal Walk is their second home and you’ll notice their faces up throughout the centre and across our social media accounts.
