I had the pleasure of  interviewing the last designer David Tiale from South Africa that showcased his fashions.

Over the five years Mr. Tiale launched his brand exceeding fashionista's expectations.
In 2008  Mr. Tlale was voted the most stylish person at the Annual South African Style Awards. He was also voted Mzansi’s Star Fashion Designer at the Mzansi Star Awards and also nominated at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Awards 2008, along with many other accolades and nominations. He was also invited to judge the Elle New Talent 2008 competition, a place where he began his journey in fashion.

 In 2008 Mr. Tlale launched his Green Collection for the voluptuous women of Mzansi; a collection that modeled by ’South African’ celebrities and journalists, including celebrities Judith Sephuma, Lebo Mashile, KG Moeketsi and Anele Mdoda.

He is famous for designing a show stopper gown for  British model, Jourdan Dunn, which was showcased at Virgin Mobile Cape Town Fashion Week and being chosen to be an ambassador for the Change-4-Ever campaign, which aims to alleviate poverty in Southern Africa.

In 2010, David showcased a 54 piece collection accompanied by a live, 28 piece orchestra at the African Fashion International Week (AFI) during the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

This innovative designer also hosted an outstanding show on the Nelson Mandela Bridge during Joburg Fashion Week 2011. The collection celebrated Nelson Mandela’s 92 years of life as it consisted of an unbelievable 92 pieces showcased by celebrities, models, sports men and women, as well as business people that all together make South Africa beautiful.

Mr. Tlale Proudly supports United Colors of Fashion, Incorporated and its HIV/AIDS program at the Soweto Hospice in South Africa
