David Tlale is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry. In February this year he made history as the first South African to secure a standalone slot to showcase under his own name at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.
He also made history by teaming up with LEGiT in 2012 to bring out a winter and summer range. The Van der Tlale winter range was filled with fur and fabulosity, while the summer range was ultra glam.
“I'm excited to be able to give SA’s younger market a chance to wear my range. We are breaking new ground in SA and I’m delighted that I will be doing it with LEGiT, one of the country’s trendiest clothing stores,” said David in an interview in 2012.
It certainly was ground-breaking indeed!
