FAB FLICKS: Uber Fab South African Designer, DAVID TLALE Launchs Store!

Filed under : Africa, Fashion

Hump day it is!


I hate that I missed David Tlale when he came down to New York City for the United Colors Of Fashion showing….

New York City is super hectic during fashion week and this year, I personally sat out the Spring/Summer showings because of the up-coming 2011 Afrotainment Museke Awards, September 24th….I am co-hosting that event & the preparations for them have been fierce!!! Whoop but we are putting is some werk!!

But heartfelt congratulations to the uber fab fashion designer for opening his first ever, David Tlale flagship store!

I heart already the look of this store! I don’t know but MAJESTIC, comes to mind….

We are told that it was a star-studded invite-only event, where friends of the David Tlale label gathered at the prestigious Michelangelo Towers on Sunday, September 4th to celebrate the launch of the store. Shoppers are afforded the opportunity to own ready-to-wear David Tlale pieces in their closets. With the look and feel of luxury, only a few of these outfits will be sold.

Having been in the fashion business for over eight years, David Tlale spoke about how his focus has now shifted from brand-building to the serious business of fashion (I heard that!).

“The last eight years have been about establishing the David Tlale brand here at home and abroad. We believe that we’ve done a good job of building and developing the brand; we can now focus on the actual retail side of the business. It is time to start generating some revenue and build a sustainable fashion label,”

The event attracted some of the most recognised and leading faces in the fashion industry, such as the Chairperson of African Fashion International, Dr. Precious Moloi-Motsepe, CEO of Fluxtrends and Trends Analyst Dion Chang; model, former television personality, Claire Mawisa & songstress, Simphiwe Dana.
