International brand guru welcomed by Garden Route fashionistas

FRICREATIVES (pronounced ‘free creatives’) comprises Monica Medea, Mpumelelo Mvunelwa and Melissa Medea - all of whom all came together to host a workshop during the first weekend in March, presented by internationally-acclaimed South African fashion designer, David Tlale. Also on hand was Leela Verity from venue and snack sponsors, Zeelas Boutique. David Tlale was welcomed by an incredibly fashionable posse when arriving at George Airport, and is pictured with, from left, designer Lizel le Riche Spies from Le Richie Design, model Busisiwe Gulwa dressed in an elegant cocktail frock with a soft fern green ban-ban layer and gently-gathered sheer black stretch mesh, model, Justine Adams dressed in an orchid-print with neck crystal and pearl-detailed collar, and fashion designer Austin Lee from Austin Creations. Says Mpumelelo: “We wanted to welcome David Tlale to the Garden Route, showcasing our talent with style. Starting his journey in George, we continued to an evening featuring more talented up and coming fashion designers in Plettenberg Bay.” For further details email fricreatives18@gmail.com or call 076 808 5978 and visit the FriCreatives Facebook page for updates. - Photos: Reafon Brendon Gates - Humble Vision Media
