PICS: David Tlale Opens New Store
September 7, 2011 by Brown Shuga
On Sunday, 4 September 2011, the first ever David Tlale flagship store was launched at an invite only event at the Michelangelo Towers in Sandton.
“The last eight years have been about establishing the David Tlale brand here at home and abroad. We believe that we’ve done a good job of building and developing the brand ; we can now focus on the actual retail side of the business. It is time to start generating some revenue and build a sustainable fashion label,” said Tlale.
Situated in the mall’s luxury lane, the store is located on the upper level at U01 and is aimed at providing access to the public to have an intimate moment with the signature David Tlale creations. Shoppers are afforded the opportunity to own ready-to-wear David Tlale pieces in their closets. With the look and feel of luxury, only a few of these outfits will be sold.

Don’t these pictures just scream “A List”? Thank you to On Point PR for the invitation and hospitality.
Oh, if you’re wondering about prices, some of the garments we saw range from R2K – R15K. Nothing compared to the usual LVs and Gucci’s, right? LOL
All the best to David Tlale on his new store, the man’s star keeps shining brighter and brighter. He is jetting of to New York City to showcase at the United Colours Of Fashion. We’re positive he’ll blow them away.
