Allow us to introduce you to the owner of your new favourite one-stop-shop destination, Luyanda Sithole (25), owner of Revolt Clothing.
Luyanda was born in Pennsylvania in the US to South African parents, she and her family moved to South Africa at a young age. Luyanda attended the National School of Arts in Johannesburg and majored in dance but soon after moved back to the US, in Los Angeles, to study fashion marketing at the Art Institure of California in Hollywood.
Her musical background combined with her marketing experience saw her working with the likes of international names such as Kelly Rowland, Ciara and The Dream.
It was these experiences which finally brought Luyanda full circle six years later, and allowed her to create an exclusive fashion range for her online boutique, Revolt Clothing – a combination of androgynous and classic styles – for the outgoing, modern and spunky South African woman.
The range launched in August and is already making it’s mark in the fashion industry, Luyanda is most certainly taking the brand (and local fashion!) to brand new heights and we can’t wait to see her journey unfold.
Sithole frequently attends LA Fashion Week and has also been a guest speaker at the LA Social Media Week.
Make sure to check out her site, browse the items and click ‘buy’ – we guarentee you won’t regret it. BRB, filling our shopping carts online at Revolt Clothing.
