The Frock Report is excited to report that South Africa’s Drama King of Fashion has scored a standalone slot on the New York Fashion Week schedule.
The show will take place at 7.30pm (NY time) on the 9th of September at a venue called THE BOX, just after Zac Posen’s show. Other designers showcasing on the same day include Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karran and Yohji Yamamoto.
It is the first time that a South African designer has been included in the main schedule of the New York shows. Previously, local designers who have been to the Big Apple, including Tlale, have only been able to showcase as part of a collective or on the fringes of the main event.
We congratulate Tlale and look forward to the reviews of the show from one of the world’s four fashion capitals. We can now truly say South African fashion has arrived on the World Stage!!!
Says the celebrated designer himself; ‘I’m so excited to be showcasing at New York Fashion Week on the calendar as David Tlale the brand. I believe this is the time and moment that God has been preparing us as a brand for. This is the beginning of the journey.’
