With a 49 pieces collection that spanned 3 sets of clothing, the South African native presented his Spring/Summer 2015 collection – “Feminine Allure” at the ongoing Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2014.

Th collection, created for the modern African woman used Vlisoc prints, silk crepe, wool crepe, brocade, silk raffia, gold lamé, chiffon and PVC, and transformation on the classic white shirt to tell his story. Speaking on his collection, David says “This collection is about giving women back their power and equipping them with a strong sense of allure, without losing their essence and femininity“. He added that “It is a celebration of a woman who’s not afraid to show her soft feminine side and yet still dares to be bold and command attention“.

With fitted lines, structured yet playful patterns with architectural elements, clinched waistlines, pencil cuts and more the collection fused modern style with retrospective look to the 50s, 60s and 70s.

    the first orange dress is a copy cat version of stephane rolland. kate walsh wore a dress similar to that first dress to this last emmy awards. google it.
    zero creativity.
    I hate it when people copy other people’s work. theres a difference between taking inspiration and copying.

    He is over-hyped joor. I don’t like the finishing of the silk dresses,it didn’t look like a professional work to me though. I would have given a thumb up if these came from my Abuja tailor but I must say my ivorien tailor work is very neat compared to a successful designer like David Thale. I’m sorry but the vlisco/ankara collection is no design at all,they are regular styles since 2007.

    Terrible clothes. Horrible collection! Nigerians need to speak louder and decry this new creeping in trend of talentless tailors trying to distract people with Nudity! Put clothes on people not strip them with rags! So pissed. Pshewwww

      IKR! this is nothing i expected of him. any tailor/seamstress will do this naa. I think they need to start distinguishing between being a “Tailor” and being a “Designer”
