We were all fuming. And justifiably so. David Tlale made us wait for a little over two hours before his much anticipated Nelson Mandela Bridge showcase, this year's highly publicised Joburg Fashion Week finale. This was set to be the biggest thing in South African fashion history; 800 seats, 92 looks, the iconic Mandela Bridge and one of the brightest stars of the design industry.
The wait for the show to begin was so long, however, once the show began, in all its theatric splendour, most people were too irritated to admit that Tlale had once again delivered. It was a show with all the drama we have come to expect, a fitting amalgamation of well interpreted themes (go to The Frock Report for my short analysis of this) and items I would personally wear at the drop of a hat.

This chiffon shirt with plunging neckline is something I see in my wardrobe. I love it!

The drama of the collection was epitomised in various forms, but this was probably the peak...
