Award-winning fashion designer and mogul David Tlale is in the loft this Thursday.
We are very fortunate today to have in our loft the “King of South African fashion”. With more than 10 years since the launch of his first brand, he has won countless awards both in South Africa and abroad. Joining me on the couch is superstar designer, David Tlale.
Tlale's proud moments of 2008 included Designing a show stopper Couture master piece for British super model Jordan Dunn at the closing show for Virgin Mobile Cape-Town Fashion Week. Chosen to be an ambassador for the Change-4-Ever campaign that aims to alleviate poverty in Southern Africa. Launched a Green Collection for the voluptuous women of Mzansi; including the likes of Judith Sephuma, Lebo Mashile, KG Moeketsi and Anele Mdoda.
2009 marked a turning point of the brand when Tlale won 'Designer of the Year" after show-casing his debut Spring/Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection that defied all expectations at Africa Fashion Week awards hosted by international super model Alek Wek. This Award afforded Tlale to debut his brand at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York Spring /2010 amongst other three African designers, courtesy of African Fashion International and Arise Mag.
