New York bites David Tlale

2013-09-08 08:14

David Tlale was caught up in a public relations nightmare in New York this week when a top US PR firm ditched him because he hadn’t paid up.

Tlale, one of the country’s top fashion designers, showed a collection in New York to rave reviews from the city’s fashionistas.

But PR firm People’s Revolution, headed by US reality TV star Kelly Cutrone, issued a statement on the eve of Tlale’s show at the Box in Lincoln Center on Thursday saying they were pulling out and announcing their displeasure at not being paid.

“You don’t go to Air France and ask to fly for free to Paris saying you’ll pay them later,” shot Cutrone, owner of People’s Revolution.

Speaking from New York, Tlale was unfazed. He said he was "actually fine".
