David Tlale Traditional Dresses Biography
David Tlale, a South African fashion designer has been making a name in the fashion industry and was awarded designer of the year in 2003, you would surely want to check out how he made wedding gowns under his brand name David Tlale.
It reminds me about a friend of mine, who was talking about getting a designer label for her wedding gown. She said she would not take any chances when it comes to the most important dress of her life and the star of all dresses during her big day. But we were also talking about how much it would cost to get a designer label for a wedding gown and if it ever drowns the total wedding budget. Whatever the topic, it always seems to come back to money! anyway…
For some, it might be impractical but for others who want to have a designer label for the most important dress of their life, then one advice is to go for budding fashion designers – yet award winning ones like David Tlale. It would probably not cost you as much as those designer labels that have been around in the industry for so long now and yet, you get good wedding gowns that will be the queen of all dresses when you walk down that aisle.
David Tlale fashion is about having that bold statement but elegant one, and his line of wedding dresses are said to be exquisite and can be showstoppers indeed! You can also find evening dresses in his line, as well as day to day wear and ready-made dresses, but most of all, the label specializes couture – not only for women but for men as well.
Remember the name, because this gentleman has a bright future. David Tlale is a humble man with a lot of talent who knows what he wants. This is a man of his time and he is a real ambassador for Africa. For me, David Tlale is the letter A in the word Africa. Intelligent fashion designer and real artist, he knows how to use the wealth of African culture in his creations. All of his designs are connected directly or indirectly to the African continent, especially from South Africa where he originates.
He has no need for the obvious – with Mr. Tlale, everything is about subtlety.
He gives us sophisticated glamour, with the cocktail dresses, drama and a taste of the romantic with the exaggerated ruffles engulfing the skirts,sleeves and bodice and we witness the power of the floral print to spice up a mini dress, be a perfect complement to excellent drapery and capture the essence of nicely tailored pants!
It is a very bold collection with a large number of statement pieces as he induces a lot of volume to his designs, there are voluminous skirts and sleeves, but he so easily balances out the collection; as he graciously transitions from the more daring to the elegant, and slightly tamed pieces which are more every woman friendly.
What I love is he continues to show his diversity, stretching on his creativity yet keeping things wearable, but all with that extra oomph! to them.
He opts for a more streamlined silhouette for some of the white pieces in this collection, which he enhances with embellishments, feather, shred and lace details, to keep it all fresh! And for the fuller skirts there is that quirky splash of ombre dye.
It’s an enchanting colour feast and he even has the men embracing them! The pinks, yellows, the oranges, the metallics and the addition of sequins make the collection come alive; and I admire his decision to explore two extremes; white and black and piece it all up with a rainbow of exciting hues!David Tlale Traditional Dresses
