CNA inspires the interns of David Tlale The Intern.
Johannesburg 05 September 2017 – As you may have already heard, CNA has teamed up with David Tlale – The Intern for a fresh and exciting collaboration. The world of television tells a story and CNA is here to inspire us with the turn of each page.
Nestled in the heart of Johannesburg the David Tlale studio serves as the Head Quarters for our Interns. A place of fashion, television and of course… inspiration! One of the biggest highlights on set is the CNA Inspiration Bar and it won’t take long for the contestants to tell you what this space means to them. Some don’t have access to a fashion library of this magnitude back home, others have only dreamed of owning these sorts of books and stationery. To them, this corner of the set is a world away from their sewing machines and tape measures; it’s a playground of idea’s and creativity, where they can play around with drawing techniques and put their ideas down on paper.
This week the contestants are faced with the CNA challenge of using unconventional materials in their garment designs. The unconventional material? Paper of course! This is an episode not to be missed as we see the contests push harder than ever before to break the top 5 and overcome their own limitations.
Find it on SABC 3 at 7:30pm every Wednesday night, repeating at 1:00pm on Saturday’s or follow the paper trail to stay in the loop!
For an opportunity to meet the cast and contestants as well as the opportunity to win some phenomenal experiences through exciting competitions, we encourage everyone to follow @CNAInspired on Instagram and twitter and @CNAyourworldinspired on Facebook to keep up to date.
