David Tlale S/S 2015: NYFW Show

David Tale's Spring and Summer line this year was bright and bold. Tlale pulled from his his African heritage this year, using bright colors and bold patterns on pieces like long flowing skirts, high waisted shorts, and pants as well as incorporating the wildness of feathers into and skirts and tops. The collection had such an allure, it was dynamic. 
I had a standing ticket but since I got their decently early (the fashion's world's version of early) I got to stand right by the center runway in the front. The view was awesome! I was so close to the models I could've leaved out and touched chiffon if I felt like it. 
I love love love this baby pink feathered skirt, I don't know when I'd wear it but I'd find a way. 
The shorts in the third pic had this great tribal-like pattern on the front which I liked but she turned and the back was covered in dark red feathers, so cool. 

He also played around with the iradeacent look, which in this first gown below worked flawlessly.                                         All the pieces had colors that we often place with the African planes; golds, oranges, pinks, reds, browns, etc. They were exciting to look at and they made each model wearing them look so confident (more than they already do) and light on their feet. 
I love when designers look to their heritage to create their collections, they often end up more personal, you feel connected with them somehow because you know the inspiration that drove their work is something central to their life. 
This collection had just the right amount of colors, prints, close fits, loose fits and beautiful flowing skirts and tops to make me fall in love. Gorgeous show! 
Keep being style seekers! 
Much love,
