Fashion designer David Tlale whose work has been showcased at the Cape Town fashion week, and who has also design collections for major retailers like Edgars, is taking a bigger step with a new reality TV Show called The Intern which will teach design students to build their own brands.
Students will be taken in for a period of 12 months where 12 hopeful fashion designers battle it out for the position of assistant designer for the house of David Tlale. The show will give 12 lucky contestants the opportunity to take part in a 13-week internship programme consisting of various challenges and eliminations.
