David Tlale is notorious for his commitment to grassroots development - he gives internships to aspiring designers and in November 2011 he travelled to his hometown of Vosloorus to teach young people back home about how to create and sustain a brand in fashion. His own inspirational journey as a small-town boy has instilled the importance of giving back.
So it was no surprise when he took his Van Der Tlale range home to Vosloorus for a runway showcase on the streets of his hometown. Just a week after the glamorous launch event at the Military Museum in Johannesburg, the VDT range was showcased in an outdoor ramp show and street party in the small town that David used to call home.
The range is a tribute to the hallmarks of the David Tlale brand, which he describes as fashion conscious and audacious - a perfect description of the LEGiT girl. This range features ready-to-wear items with splashes of animal print, glimmer and patterns all worked into a sophisticated, ready-to-wear line that can be worn all year round.
The VDT range has become a fashion sensation and a first for SA, combining all the elements of David's runway success with street fashion that's perfect for sophisticated, on-trend, fashion-forward fashionistas.
