NEW YORK – On Tuesday, February 14, 2012, while some may have been out at Valentine´s Day dinner, the UCOF team was hard at work making sure South African designer David Tlale´s show was going off without a hitch.
And without a hitch it went!
Presented before dignitaries, socialites and fashion fanatics alike, Tlale´s collection was displayed in a showcase; instead of having models walk a typical runway, Tlale´s setup gave on-lookers an opportunity to browse his collection up-close and personal.
This approach fit very well with the sounds of mellow African drumming beats serving as the soundtrack to the event. Guests were treated to a variety of appetizers which included cocktail shrimp, choice fruits, nuts, and a bacon-lettuce arrangement. For drinks, there was an array of South African red and white wines.
Although there can be nothing more satisfying than a great selection of food and drink, guests were more amazed by Tlale´s Fall/Winter 2012 collection; many an “ooh, aah” could be heard by observers who appeared more than satisfied by what had been presented.
