Sovata is a fashion label by independent designer Jade Sargent. Based in Canberra, Sovata creates vibrant and unique garments and hats to be worn for any occasion. Sovata is for women, 25 to 65, who are bold, confident and not afraid to stand out from the crowd. These women appreciate, colour, design, femininity and form, and are attracted to Sovata’s individuality and craftsmanship. Jade is a graduate of Canberra Institute of Technology and holds a Bachelor in Design (Fashion) and Certificate II in Millinery. This year, Jade is stepping away from focusing solely on sustainability and zero waste pattern making, and experimenting with other techniques. This is Sovata’s fourth year at FASHFEST.
