South African designer David Tlale hits the big time at NY Fashion Week



Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola said, “New York Fashion Week is a significant platform in the global world of fashion, on which designers profile their collections for the forthcoming season. Brand South Africa congratulates David Tlale on his successful showing at the 2013 New York Fashion Week and we are proud of him for flying our national flag in New York.”

“In addition to being an inspirational South African, David is part of new a South African movement as a Play Your Part Ambassador. The campaign encourages South Africans to actively participate in creating the country we would all like to live in, a country of which we can be proud. We invite other outstanding South Africans who do ordinary things, extraordinarily, to join this movement for social change,” concluded Matola.

David Tlale “Plays his Part” for our economy by utilising only South African materials in his designs. All his creations are also made in South Africa – creating jobs and opportunities in the process.
David will be available for interviews following his return from the United States next week.
