South Africa’s David Tlale dubbed his collection ‘Cultural Intimacy’ and on the ARISE Promise of Africa Collective runway, we could see why. The palette for the collection was rich earthy colours and neutrals – these were an excellent base for the classic collection as it allowed the audience to focus on the marvelous cuts and unexpected mix of embellishments – there were tassles, there were Edwardian ruffles and then there were sequins. There was just something about this collection that was temptingly sophisticated yet naughty. Our favourite piece was an all-black outfit with comprised of a top with a high Edwardian collar, jacket and unique fringe embellished cigarette pants – we can just imagine fashion it-girl of the moment Rihanna rockin’ this. A perfectly polished collection from a budding design star.

    Fab collection! This is very runway-esque and Jewel by Lisa’s collection is quite ordinary and very “I have seen this before-ish”. Just my opinion.

    Fashionisme is right, its a runway collection, you’re not meant to wear the clothes the exact way they’re advertised.
    Tiffany Amber and co just show thier fab designs, nothing edgy.
    Good job David

    Dear, fashion is an art. There are piece that are more ready-to-wear and pieces that are more avant-garde. Bear that in mind so you can appreciate this form of art better. But you can have your opinion I guess. I LOVE this collection.
