South African fashion export David Tlale has shown his first solo collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. We love Tlale not just because he's an African designer climbing the ranks at an international level, but also for his sense of overstated elegance. Soon, even people like me will drop the "African" from the description and just call him a "designer".
Veteran model and Africa's Next Top Model host Oluchi closes the show:
