About us

Robyn Victor is a Cape Town-based designer, born in Plettenberg Bay. She moved to Cape Town in 2002 to study Graphic Design in Advertising and then Fashion Design.

In 2009, after 3 years of working and designing for the retail industry, she launched her own collection under the August label.

August's simple design philosophy is pure and sophisticated. Robyn feels a woman's wardrobe should reflect her lifestyle and function as an extension of whom she is.

Since its inception in 2009, August has been one of the most sought after resort influenced labels catering to the fashion minded, modern woman.

August’s designs are constantly inspired by both the resort and casual sides of the South African lifestyle and its sophisticated way of life. Originally known for its signature tunics, August has grown as a complete collection of ready to wear and accessories.

August is also a very proudly South African produced clothing range, using both locally and internationally sourced fabrics and prints.

Our August Artisan collection features beautiful, limited edition pieces that have been handmade by craftswomen, using traditional techniques passed down through generations.

This hand-crafted production brings a unique quality to our collections, while helping to sustain age old crafts like hand-embroidery and embellishment.
