About

Jaded Life's fashions comprise both bespoke and off the peg pret-a-porter affordable luxury ranges, a highlight being the signature brocade dinner jackets accented with bold batik-style linings. JL's Sofiatown Collection was manufactured in Cape Town using fine grade fabrics and finishes of silk and nappa leather. Since 2012 JL has manufactured in London and exhibited at fashion shows in the U.K. such as the BFC London Collections Men. Moreover, the Translucent Futures and Anime Noir collections as featured in Vogue morphed into the repurposed Eclecticism Collection exhibited at the AW18/19 Pure trade fair as part of the Jaded Life Hub collective initiative: see NEWS:13/2/18. The JLH cluster and associated pop-up shop nights were inaugurated at the Sanderson Hotel as Fashion-Bound events. Fashion events management is the allied focus of activity, encompassing such corporate branded showcases as the Converse Optimistic Rebels campaign and well-received Cape Town Fashion Police show as well as the recent Ladies' Polo Day at Westcroft Polo Club (featured showreels and photos in NEWS).

Urban sportswear 'athleisure' ranges were unveiled at Pure as well as a couture capsule collection under the designer's signature Sibu Dladla label. In 2020, the Jaded Life Hub will further develop as a social enterprise programme benefitting recent fashion design alumni and emerging start-up labels while we plan to open a flagship shop. Afrofuturism Collection Showcases: AFWL & BFC LFW: Feb & Sept.
