The home of effortless bohemian chic, Parkhurst is an old suburb where the arrival of young fashion designers brought in fresh energy to the area. The streets, primarily Fourth Avenue, are lined with restaurants that spill onto the sidewalk, inviting you to come inside. The buildings here are as eclectic as the neighborhood, with industrial architecture nestled among structures that have a softer, Old World charm. Street vendors sell all sorts of handmade goods, including woven baskets, beaded decorations and hand-carved statues.
Meet Pumza Fihlani
Pumza has lived in Johannesburg since 2006. She describes herself as a small town girl, having grown up in Mthatha, South Africa, in the countryside. She moved to the city as an intern, fell in love with its lights and never left. She loves city life but misses the clear night sky in the Eastern Cape province — and the sense of community there.
