Johannesburg – Black Panther is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and David Tlale got to dress one of its stars for the premiere. 

Celebs walked the red carpet in Hollywood for the premiere of the much talked about film, and among them was Florence Kasumba who stars in the movie as “Ayo”. The actress looked stunning in a black dress designed by SA’s David Tlale. 

“It all happened on my birthday which made it even more special. Florence is an amazing actor and I am honoured that she asked for me. This is an exciting moment not only for me but for African fashion,” David said in a press statement. 

The outfit, a form-fitting showstopper, is made from dotted lace, pleated tulle and velvet finishing, corseted with beaded lace.

“It fits her body like a glove. She was so excited to receive it and when she did the fitting in Berlin on Saturday, they face timed me and it looked beyond phenomenal. You can never go wrong with a black dress on the red carpet,” the designer added.
