“We remember the day we saw our first ever orders come through online. It meant so much to us that people loved our clothing and we’ve never taken that for granted.”
It all started in 2009 when our co-founders, Jade and Jack, were travelling the world. Inspired by the vibrant fabric markets in India, they set out to create colourful clothes that made people feel good. Just like that, Dancing Leopard was born.
First, we made our mark in London, before heading to Ibiza where we became known for our statement designs in the island’s funkiest boutiques. These days, we’re proud to have an international website, concessions in ten countries (and counting) and last year, we opened our first flagship store in Ibiza Town.
Every piece of Dancing Leopard clothing is designed in-house by our talented team. We’ve never been one to follow trends, instead our collections are small and timeless, meaning that you’ll wear them now and always.
Our statement prints are one of the things that we’re best known for. Our CEO and co-founder, Jade, takes inspiration from the scenery in Ibiza, where she lives, and our print designer (who hand-draws every single design, by the way) brings her vision to life.
To make our products more sustainable, our design process now involves sourcing eco-conscious fabrics to use in our collection. Not only are we creating new styles in conscious fabrics, we’re also re-making our classics.
Giving back to communities is something that has always been close to our hearts. In the last few years alone, we’ve donated over £130,000 to charity through fundraising and donating profit.
Some of the charities we’ve worked with recently include Women for Women International, Choose Love and Shelter. And, in 2022, we were nominated for the Business Charity Award for our partnership with Railway Children.
Two-time nominee for Draper’s Womenswear Brand of the Year award, 2021 and 2022.
