“Rubicon was established by, Hangwanu Nengovhela, in 2002. She wanted to create a women’s wear range that had a distinctive, ethnic-chic look to it. She is a self-taught designer who’s worked to capture the essence and elegance of the female figure with her diverse talent and is well known for her classic lines and timeless elegance. Her garments are seen regularly on discerning celebrities and shows on SABC 2.
This season, she is inspired by spring as it symbolizes hope, fresh energy and new beginnings; her whole collection has a sense of revival with light fabrics, soft, muted tones and elegance. In 2012 Rubicon will be celebrating it’s 10th anniversary and the launch of the Rubicon Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides clothes to those in need.”
