About Us

Why choose us?

The South African fashion industry is expanding a great deal each year, with the general public forming a particular taste for uniquely designed fashion wear and a growing trend of “the exterior being a reflection of one’s inner self”. This has led to more designers entering the industry on a yearly basis and older brands/designers becoming more established and appreciated.

Since its establishment in 2002, the Johannesburg based brand, Rubicon, has become one of South Africa’s well renowned brands, housing elegant sub brands: Roots by Rubicon, Rubicon Woman and Rubicon Premium. This in effect has grown Rubicon, and has made the brand one of Gauteng’s most desirable fashion destinations for women. With a worldliness inspired mind-set, Rubicon, embodies effortless style, forms flattering sophistication, provides tailored craftsmanship and timeless design.
