Renowned fashion designer David Tlale has made SA fashion history with his new partnership with beauty brand, AVON. The star is the first local designer to collaborate with the brand on a line of sunglasses, handbags, and scarves. The partnership serves to make high fashion accessible to every woman and empower Beauty Representatives to earn.
David shared the exciting news with a video shared on social media. In it, he reminisced on the brand being a part of his life from a young age. He said in part; “I remember how my sisters appreciated the product, AVON. Even my mom in her last days, how she loved using AVON.”
On the partnership, David said in part; “Over the years people have always thought that David Tlale is an unreachable an brand. Why we decided to take up on this marriage with AVON is to say; David Tlale is an aspirational brand, AVON is a female-centric brand. There’s power in collaboration because I believe with this cross-pollination of cultures, values and also business we are going to change people’s lives more than we did in our own right.”
He continued; “Growing up and seeing women who used AVON never thought that one day I would be collaborating with AVON. It’s such a fulfilling moment right now whereby it’s gone 360. It’s from home into my studio and into the world.”
The DavidTlalexAvon collection will be available from 1 March 2020.
