Aimed at nurturing and transferring skills to post-graduate fashion design students, the reality show, The Intern by David Tlale, saw 12 hopeful fashion designers battling it out for the title of Assistant Designer for the house of David Tlale. They were judged based on creativity, originality, understanding of the brief as well as excellence in execution.
On Wednesday, 04 October 2017, after 12 gruelling episodes, Ms Moshoeshoe, who hails from Lesotho and who has recently graduated from UJ, was crowned the overall winner at the season’s live finale. Contestants presented an exit collection consisting of seven designs that appeals to a global market in terms of trends but are distinctively a South Africa original.
