David Tlale Launched Autumn/Winter 2020 Collection Via Digital Runway Show
South African fashion designer David Tlale recently hosted a digital fashion show showcasing his new collection for the Autumn/Winter 2020 season.
The pre-recorded show which was presented on his Instagram page was tagged “Classica Icons” which featured a mix of men’s and womenswear looks that takes into consideration the pandemic coronavirus.
The designer explores new ways of craftsmanship and creativity matching his usual bold, luxurious designs with a sense of social consciousness based on the times we are in. Some of the looks sent down the runway were paired with latex gloves and face masks.
According to the designer the show “serves as a call-to-action for the local Clothing and Textile Industry and the fashion community at large to help amplify and bring awareness to business sustainability in South Africa, and encourage adherence to the set ‘National Lockdown’ regulations. This prompts new ways of presenting craftsmanship and creativity of David Tlale’s signature trailblazing approach to fashion, promising to inspire “Africa and Global Trends” in this coming season.”
David Tlale worked in partnership with Boschendal Wines and Avon South Africa to digitally showcase “Classica Icons”.
The Collection carries iconographic prints and textures as well as timeless silhouettes that have stood the test of time since the inception of the brand ‘David Tlale’.
