NEW YORK - South African designer David Tlale will show his latest collection at New York Fashion Week on Sunday.

The award-winning designer hopes to wow the audience with his 2013 autumn range.

Tlale said he was learning to swim in New York's fashion industry.

"I am a small fish in a very big ocean so I have to learn to do things the way New York does it."

The theme for his collection is decadence.

"This is our tenth year anniversary so we are celebrating it with decadence."

This will be Tlale's second time showcasing his work in New York.
