One of such shows is the just ended spring and summer season of African Fashion International (AFI) Fashion Week in South Africa. She was among top fashion models that brought life to the AFI Fashion Week.
She had the honor of showcasing designs by top designers including David Tlale, whose works for the night have been described as “meaningful”. The flamboyant designer paid homage to his biggest muse and late mother, Joyce Tlale, naming his SS20 collection “Joyce” Tlale’s.
His presentation began with fun and colourful pieces, drawing inspiration from his ‘Heritage Month’ collaboration with Tastic Rice, as well as the rich and vibrant cultures found in South Africa. Visuals and images of Victoria on the runway during David Tlale’s showcase have been generating a lot of attention on social media.
On Instagram she said, “It was an emotional night for models, guests and designers as @davidtlale paid tribute to his mother with a tribute worthy collection @afi_sa Fashion Week.” “Thanks to the amazing @andiswamanxiwa @deonredman and the entire crew for having me. I love you @taryncannings.”
