JBoxing happened with a huge bang yesterday at The Empire Hotel & Country Club. As you know that Jovian Ready-to-Wear (RTW) event is always popular in Malaysia and it’s already happening in Brunei Darussalam. The event continues today till Sunday, 7th May 2017.
This time round to expect different range of designs and JBoxing is also an event whereby all Jovian fans will gather all at once as to own their favourite Lebaran pieces.
Bajoo is proud to partner with Jovian for the JBoxing event. Also part of the event is their exclusive main partner, Baiduri Bank Group. The expectations are quite high as they expect around 20,000 visitors over the three day period.
For Jovian, he has always wanted to host an event in Brunei and he figured that this is the right time. To Jovian, Brunei has been his favourite destination as he has many support from Bruneians and royalties. For your info, Jovian Mandagie is the cEO and Creative Director for Jovian Apparel.
Yesterday a few thousands showed up on the 1st day of JBoxing event in Brunei. Do expect more in the remaining two days. Good luck to Bajoo and Jovian. Some of the images courtesy of @kurapak

Article by Lyna Mohamad of Borneo Bulletin. The fashion event JBoxing this year will be held in Brunei at The Empire Hotel & Country Club from May 5-7 (next weekend) and will see the launching of Jovian’s first bag collection.
Inspired from London’s Boxing Day, JBoxing is fashion line Jovian’s annual event. This year, Jovian Mandagie, CEO and Creative Director of Jovian, will host the event while launching its first bag collection, the Jovian Borsa, and its new Jovian Men and the Little Boy Collection.
“I have always wanted to have an event in Brunei and I figured that the time has come. Due to a lot of requests, we have decided to bring JBoxing to Brunei,” said Jovian in a press conference last weekend.
The inaugural event is jointly organised by Bruneian powerhouse atelier and multi-label store, Bajoo Butik, and main partner Baiduri Bank Group.
The event which will also see the Little Kids Collection from the Lisa Surihani Collection, Savannah Collection for Zalora Fashion and the JLuxe Collection, has become a phenomenon for every fashionista, especially those craving for Jovian RTW (‘Ready-To-Wear’).
Always a wonderful chemistry between the two 😀

Jovian said Bruneians will get to see “an exciting project” between him and Jackie of Bajoo Butik, with the launch of the kid’s line designs for the Brunei and Malaysian markets.
“I think this is a high achievement and a great benchmark for Jackie for being able to collaborate with a brand from Malaysia,” he said. “JBoxing is an event where we would have exclusive, new launches of a collection, as well as special discounts on items,” said Jovian. “There are also items on a flat price basis, or that might turn into a free giveaway.”
From only 4,000 visitors in the first year it was launched, the number of people coming to the ‘box’ has increased every year, with a record 40,000 visitors last year.
“We are very much ready to shake the city with a new experience of shopping… We are expecting visitors coming from all over Brunei, Sabah and Sarawak,” said Jovian, who expects 15,000 visitors this year.
The CEO expressed his appreciation to Baiduri Bank Group, DST, BMW, Mix Mediaworks, Brunei Press and other partners for bringing the event into the international stage.
