DEAR David Tlale
Shwashwi will skip the formalities and shoot straight to the point.
You have to stop trying so hard to be different with your fashion shows. Nobody will think less of you if you have a normal show like all the other designers.
When you did the Nelson Mandela Bridge, we all thought it was a genius move. Well, maybe not your models, they probably hated you for that stunt.
But you missed the mark at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg last weekend. Nelson Mandela Square didn t work. Those poor models looked in pain as they walked on the uneven ground. You didn t even have the decency to give them a carpet.
Clearly you have no idea how hard it is to walk in heels.
One of the poor models even broke a shoe strap.
There was also no music, which made the whole thing very awkward.
How did you expect them to walk in silence? It was a little uncomfortable to watch. And last, what s the obsession with ALWAYS being part of your own shows? Let your clothes speak for themselves.
Stop this before it gets embarrassing.
