Aspiring designers face off in the “Intern by David Tlale” reality show With David Tlale

The Intern by David Tlale is a 13-episode reality TV show shot in Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg which follows 12 contestants on their journey to becoming David Tlale’s next intern. The first episode of the Intern by David Tlale will air on the 4th of July 2017 on SABC 3.

The Intern by David Tlale is a new reality show about the South African fashion industry that is committed to the development and support of the country’s budding talent and this platform gives them an opportunity to hone their skills and puts South Arica on the fashion landscape. It gives the youth an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in working with celebrated designers, stylists, photographers, models and learning the ropes of the real world of fashion.

I have great respect for every contestant who took part in this first season because they all come from different backgrounds and some with no specialist fashion training and so I know it has been challenging for them, especially to do this in front of the camera”, says Tlale.

Throughout the show the audience gets to witness 12 shortlisted contestants from across South Africa via online applications as they battle it out for the chance to win a full year mentorship with world renowned designer David Tlale. On each episode, contestants are given a fashion design project and are judged on their work. One or two participants are then eliminated each week.

The mentorship includes specialised training and development by industry experts, exposure to all facets of the David Tlale brand and business including: design, fabric sourcing, range development and production, quality control, marketing and retail, media training, basic business management skills.

The grand finale will be aired live from Nelson Mandela bridge in October 2017 where one or two winners will be announced.

Introducing A Festival With A Purpose – The Jazz In July

With all the festivities in the city over the prestigious Vodacom Durban July weekend attracting thousands of visitors and cultivating the potential for other secondary entertainment and events, this year sees the birth of the first annual JAZZ IN JULY concert.

Taking place at the Juventus field at the Bontanical Gardens on Sunday 2nd July, the festival aims to deliver a supreme and sophisticated outdoor musical experience to cater for a more music orientated crowd. With the electrifying festive buzz, the JAZZ IN JULY will offer alternative mature entertainment on the Sunday post the infamous horse race.

The JAZZ IN JULY will feature live performances from SA’s premium Jazz and Afro Soul artists.

Other performers include Zandi Khumalo, Scelo Gowane, Sands Mondli Ngcobo, DJ Kotin, the UKZN Jazz Emsemble and many many more.

The JAZZ IN JULY however is just the end results of a series of several community building activiites and initiatives leading up to it. From the roadshow running through the month of June with the aim of discovering and developing new talent who will later headline at the festival; to workshops to build local talent and even the opportunity for hands on experience at the festival offered to event management students.

“One of the main aims of Jazz in July is to unearth and nurture new talent in the province,” says organizer Wanita Ngcobo. “The Jazz in July is so much more than just a concert or festival, there are so many legs to this which includes development of the community.”

The festival will present an interactive and irresistible musical experience using sound, interactive stage, dance, live performances, theatre of the mind and active collaborations of musicians i.e. afro-pop with jazz.

Patrons are encouraged to bring along their camping chairs, umbrella’s and cooler boxes (free before 2pm, R100 thereafter) to enjoy the atmosphere whilst taking part in the activities the festival has to offer. Several braaistands will be available on site so guests are welcome to bring and braai. Hospitality marquees will also be set up for VIP and other guests.
