Illustrious South African fashion designer, David Tlale, stopped traffic when he took to the streets of New York yesterday to unveil his latest collection – in multiple locations.
The audacious street runway show also formed an integral part of a four day trip to the Big Apple in celebration of New York Fashion Week and the trio of David Tlale, Bonang Matheba and Anatii.
The show saw Tlale utilize two iconic New York backdrops as the setting to reveal his dazzling new “Azania” Spring/Summer collection.
Talking about his collection, David said:
“I always enjoy presenting the unexpected and I couldn’t think of a better place than the streets of NYC to show my new collection which is, after all, inspired by this city and its hustle and fast-forward bustle.”
In the street runway show, Tlale used 15 models which included Nigerian Actor Gbenro Ajibade, all of whom travelled to both locations – Times Square and the Highline, a former raised railway line turned park – to express his collection’s narrative.
