Luyanda Sithole presents Revolt Clothing, following a successful career in LA as a fashion marketing specialist.

Luyanda was the Head of marketing and strategy for the retail consulting group Scaling Retail as well as a Vlogger, bringing that international fashion flair to South Africa through the launch of her own line, Revolt Clothing.

Luyanda was born in the state of Pennsylvania USA to South African parents, Velile and Sipho Sithole. While growing up in South Africa she has always had an interest in fashion and entertainment as a whole and got exposed to her parents’ leading independent and integrated entertainment company (Native Rhythms) at an early age, which explains where that star power comes from.

She attended the National School of the Arts as a dance Major, and then made the very brave plunge to move to Los Angeles to study Fashion Marketing, at The Art Institute of California- Hollywood. After graduating with Honours from College, Luyanda dabbled in the music industry under Tricky Stewart‘s label Red Zone Entertainment. Realizing her passion for being in the fashion industry, Luyanda left the music industry behind, and hit the ground running to pursue her dreams to become a fashion mogul. In her tenure under Red Zone Entertainment she rubbed shoulders with the likes of Destiny Child’s Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Ne-Yo and well known producer The Dream.

After starting her own fashion YouTube Channel SilverWears TV and getting emails to feature up and coming designers, Luyanda realized that her own fashion voice needs to be heard. Luyanda has created her own fast fashion online boutique Revolt Clothing to bridge the gap for South African women and their accessibility to unique global styles. After 6 years in the tough city of Los Angeles, Luyanda packed her bags and moved back to Johannesburg South Africa to become a fashion pioneer.

Revolt Clothing launches on 20 August 2016 at the beautiful boutique hotel, The View which is based in Auckland Park. The launch is a strictly by invite stellar mixer for the most sought after fashion bloggers of Mzansi, few exclusive media houses and some A- listers. Known as the “Bad Ass Entrepreneur” Luyanda is excited about the launch and hopes to make a mark in the retail industry and give young women the global trends they desire while keeping their style authentic to Mzansi.

Revolt’s online store is the It-Girl’s destination. An oasis of a range of patterns and textures, a style location for the modern South African girl who is not afraid to mix and match the androgynous and classic styles. The name “Revolt” matches the personal style of the brand’s CEO Luyanda Sithole who refuses to live by the status quo, and surrounds herself with the rebels of the world.

The collection is a combination of trends and fashion influence from the entertainment capital of the United States of America, LA and the vibrant energetic spirit that is Johannesburg.
