David Tlale Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

South Africa native designer David Tlale made one of the biggest splashes at New York Fashion Week. Renowned for his undeniable knack for showmanship and elaborate designs, Tlale’s work is both daring and dramatic—a brand that defies convention and a brand that impenitently employs unpredictable use and understanding of fabric, color and texture.

I went backstage during his New York Fashion Week show to get a close up look at Tlale’s high-wattage collection.  David says he finished the  new collection just a few days ago and it was a true labor of love. ” My collection is for every women, the women in the corporate world, the fashion editor, or the stay at home mom who always looks fabulous. This collection should take a lady from day to night and everything in between, says Tlale.”

The Fall 2013 collection was stunning, regal, and fit for a modern-day princess.   Tlale’s collection is strong, bold and very wearable. I also couldn’t help but admire the distinguished  eyewear from Christian Roth.

Tlale continues to build strong USA awareness, and his designs have been seen on Beyonce as well as many other celebrities.  I ran into the lovely & charming  Phaedra Parks, from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, who is working on her second workout dvd. She was in love with Tlale’s entire collection. “David’s collection is fit for a queen, and I can’t wait to try everything on, said Parks.”
