Renowned Fashion Designer David Tlale Celebrates 20 Years in the Industry with a Spectacular Fashion Show

Celebrated fashion designer David Tlale is set to mark a significant milestone in his illustrious career as he celebrates 20 years in the fashion industry. In commemoration of this remarkable achievement, Tlale is preparing to unveil an extraordinary 80- piece collection at a highly anticipated fashion show.

The upcoming collection holds a deep personal meaning for Tlale, paying tribute to his late mother who would have turned 80 this past September. This profound inspiration serves as the driving force behind the exquisite designs that will be showcased at the event.

The David Tlale invite-only show will take place in the vibrant Melrose Arch Precinct on 08 November, just before the highly anticipated AFI Joburg Fashion Week kicks off on 09 November. Fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders alike can expect an unforgettable spectacle as Tlale showcases his latest creations, demonstrating why he has become a force to be reckoned with within the fashion world.

Reflecting his commitment to nurturing emerging talent and giving back to the industry, Tlale’s show will commence with a special segment featuring a 30-piece collection by six exceptional interns. Each intern will have the opportunity to showcase their unique vision through a captivating five-piece collection. This initiative not only highlights Tlale’s dedication to cultivating the next generation of fashion leaders, but also emphasizes the importance of collaboration and mentorship within the industry.

The David Tlale 20th Anniversary celebrations will extend well beyond the fashion show, with a series of events and activities planned all through to November 2024. Tlale’s longevity in the industry is a testament to his exceptional talent, unwavering passion, and artistic vision.

Presented by the House of David Tlale, the show is made possible through the generous support of our valued sponsors. Their commitment to the fashion industry and dedication to nurturing creativity has been instrumental in bringing this momentous occasion to life.
