USA homestyle author and TV presenter, Martha Stewart, will be one of the guest speakers at the 13th Design Indaba, which runs from 24 – 28 February in the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The Design Indaba is broken up into different elements, and the Conference runs from 24 – 26 February.   Stewart, who is America’s doyenne of style and taste, and editor of the ‘Martha Stewart Living” magazine as well as presenter of a TV programme, will address the conference.   Other speakers include Dutch designer Tord Boontje, trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, and local cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro, better known as Zapiro.

From 26 – 28 February a Design Expo will take place, showcasing 260 exhibits of the best of design in advertising, architecture, craft, decor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design, new media, publishing and product design.   The Expo is a “100 % local-is-lekker celebration of South Africa’s ingrained creativity”, says the Design Indaba website.

On Saturday 27 February a special breakfast has been organised in conjunction with Woolworths, starting at 9h00, with Martha Stewart as guest speaker.  The breakfast presentation costs R 250, and tickets can be booked at Computicket.

A fashion show, a focus on design for children, a film festival, and the search for South Africa’s most beautiful product also form part of Design Indaba 2010.  More information about the Design Indaba is available on www.designindaba.com.
