#NEWS: The Boschendal Experience with David Tlale

The David Tlale x Boschendal Experience was a beautifully polite weekend extravaganza that culminated on the Sunday with a sophisticated fashion show of David Tlale creations with the finale masterpiece dress being the quintessential fashion representation of Boschendal’s Demi Sec Méthode Cap Classique (MCC): a perfect combination of sweet (49% Pinot Noir) and savvy (51% Chardonnay). The Boschendal estate in Stellenbosch was a panoramic set for the event; with its scenic lush green gardens and the cascading valley mountains in the horizon, the Cape Town weather played along with a gentle warm breeze and clear sunny skies.

In true David Tlale style the collection was tailored, hand-crafted, embellished and consistent. Featuring a surprise guest starring of children’s attire, the ensemble illustrated tall crystal glasses of bubbles in brut to rosé. Silks and chiffons were the order of the day with nuances of feathers and beads making appearances. The menswear was refined, hinting to influences and inspirations of Asian descent. Some style notes from the collection include long, sensual slits at the back of dresses, elaborate tiered sleeves and voluminous dresses.

The dress of the moment was an elegant slither of chiffon-silk featuring a somewhat abstract floral print in hues of green, tinges of yellow gold and fresh splashes of blue. With a young sweetheart neckline dropped to below the shoulders, David added a stitch of glamour with plump balloon sleeves with a red carpet-ready cape-trail. Happy [the model] was feature accentuated with garden party savvy gold sandals with rose detail and her hair was fascinated with gold oriental chandeliers.

David Tlale’s Boschendal Experience was attended by a melting pot of locals and visitors from out of town. From fashion veterans such as Jackie Burger of Salon58 and Didier of Magents, TV personalities such as Danine Naidoo to Instagram celebrities and fashion photographers and of course, not forgetting the avid David Tlale consumers who continue to support the brand with every social highlight they attend.

Overall the David Tlale Experience with Boschendal made for a wonderful day out in the sun and a fantastic opportunity to play catch up with industry folk that one hardly gets the chance to meet over coffee considering how busy people’s schedules can get. Here’s to Boschendal and their deliciously sweet Demi Sec MCC, “Cheers!”.
