Thursday Fashion: David Tlale

Morning guys, and how is your week going? Did you stop by for some lovely music on my post yesterday, if you didn’t you can take a quick look HERE.
This post has been languishing in my draft box since January…. i know, terrible right?
The second part in my David Tlale Fashion Collection exhibited at last year’s GTB FASHION WEEKEND. So here it is in all its monochrome splendour. I’m biased to any cool looking BW scheme but this is taking a cool mix to a whole new level of luxury.


P.S – You can check out the first part of his show with this link – DAVID TLALE 01


WPC: Graceful Models

This week GRACE and its entourage feelings of elegance and effortlessness are on display in the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. 
  1. having or showing grace or elegance.

It’s a quality that’s not limited to humans, Mother Nature has badges in that dept especially with her array of beautiful birds, insects and mammals. Today i focus on the Fashion World, Models are taught to walk and exude effortless grace all the while dressed in expensive wear and crazy high heels. I don’t know how they do it but it’s always a beauty to behold.

This is from last year’s GTB Fashion Weekend Runway Show which showcased 10 Fashion Designers, in total. The line up included 2 Nigerians – Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi and Ejiro Amos Tafiri, Adama Paris (Senegalese), Taibo Bacar (Mozambican), David Tlale (South African), Julien Macdonald (Welsh).
This is a 2nd in my series of posts from that tightly packed weekend. Here’s a link to the first 🙂 – GTB FSHN WKND 1.

I feel they where beautiful and graceful strutting down the catwalk both male and female models. Does their effortless poise come through the pictures?


It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Fashion Shows

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Fashion Shows and lots of it. Now is the time Fashion Houses, and the industry pump out Spring/Summer Collections. What’s In verses What’s Out, on every fashionista’s mind is did my favorite trend of the year make it into next years trends and what’s new?
I picked 2 silhouette shots taken during the just concluded GTB Fashion Weekend, David Tlale’s Collection was on show and i’ll be sharing my shots of that on Thursday on this blog. On a more quiet note my birthday was on Thursday and it was pretty quiet….*crickets chirping*…very quiet, i guess that’s what happens if it falls in between Monday and Thursday it naturally moves over to the weekend. 

Hers’s to a wonderful weekend, and check out the link to see more entries of this Photo Challenge.
WPC: It’s Not This Time of Year Without…



This week i’m off to a nice start, firstly apologies for the lateness of this post. Was supposed to post it last week Thursday but i wanted to do a bit more work on the images to my satisfaction and without much ado here they are.
This dress collection is from the GTB Fashion Weekend Exhibitor: WEIZ DHURM FRANKLYN, I love the feel of shimmering fabrics, cutouts and  draping dresses. Share your thoughts on these styles down in the comments 🙂 .
