So last August was Cape Town Fashion week and we were invited to watch fashion heavyweight David Tlale’s S/S collection. All the who’s whos’s of fashion descended on the mother city to see what one of our favourite local designer had in store for them this season. Of course expectations were reached and surpassed, the Avant garde show ended with Mr Tlale driving down the runway with a procession of models following. This season saw the revival of nude warm spring colours and intricate print with our favourite piece from the David Tlale collection being the two toned mint suit.
Our other stand out designer was Thula Sindi, who we were privileged enough to meet and interview at the Design Indaba earlier on this year.
Read the interview here. The denim, lace and detailed embroidery were the stand out pieces of his collection this season. His ability to create a perfect balance between street and finesse is one of the reasons why we adore Thula Sindi’s work.
