The Team

Sibusiso Dladla

Sibu founded the fashion label Jaded Life and sub-brand Jaded Androgen in 2006 in Cape Town with an inspirational southern African sunbird logo, having studied at UCT, the city's Haute Couture School of Fashion and subsequently London's LCCA and UEL (BA Hons Fashion Design): fashion-uel.com. JL relocated to London in 2011 having built on its retailing and styling base in South Africa where Sibu had also developed expertise in managing promotional events for such high-profile clients as Fish Eagle brandy and SAB Miller, as well as in fashion. Sibu, a Swazi-South African, has modelled in London Fashion Week while he was scouted as a teenager leading to stints in Milan and Paris, walking for Gaultier. He has fronted major ad campaigns from the VW Beetle to Jameson's whiskey while presents interviews during LFW for notjustalabel.com/fashion-films. A cherished long-term ambition is to re-invest in South African education to nurture young designers through the endowment of a dedicated arts and design academy. @sibumuse / email: jadedlifestyles@gmail.com
