Re-thinking fashion e-commerce from the ground up, creating an ecosystem beneficial for consumers, brands and the environment.
We’re a marketplace platform built not only with sustainability at its core showcasing independent luxury fashion and jewellery brands… but also providing consumers with the tools they need to make conscious and sustainable fashion choices.
Why does this matter? Contemporary independent brands, particularly those leaning towards or in the luxury market are uniquely and negatively impacted by the current economic climate. Fast fashion dominates large swathes of the consumer market, and for those consumers that do buy luxury… in the current economic environment avoid contemporary independent brands for well known flagship fashion houses.
But it gets worse in the e-commerce space. Most e-commerce experiences these days are transactional, a person only interacts with a brand when they want to buy something or return something. We think there is a better way, a more sustainable way, that not only serves the customer better, but also the brand.
Welcome to the Revstance ecosystem. What we’re building takes people on a journey, they are more than a customer, they are a member of our platform and community which consists of:
+ Revstance. A marketplace where you can discover and buy products made by amazing independent designers and artisans. You are not just buying arbitrary products, you’re investing in your wardrobe and buying from the future of fashion. You’re buying from people that obsess over the details and see the world differently. You get to be part of their journey and literally in some cases step into their shoes.
+ Meet Your Wardrobe (MYW). A platform built by the Revstance team which can be used on its own but also connected to Revstance that allows people buying products on Revstance to optimally manage what they’ve bought. MYW allows users to easily track what they wear, giving them insights into how they use what they buy allowing them to make more conscious and sustainable future purchasing decisions. Plus, if they find they don’t wear something enough, in a few clicks they can create their own web store to start selling and renting those items. But it gets better… by renting and re-selling Revstance products, you’re actually supporting the independent brands as well, as we share 40% of our commission with them. In the same way a musician earns royalties when their music plays, brands on our platform earn royalties every time their products are rented or sold.
[Beta: We are in public beta! We are striving to give you an amazing experience when using the platform. If you have any feedback at all, or if anything doesn't look right please don't hesitate to reach out to us!]
Muaz. I spend my days (and nights) consulting on finance, fashion, sustainability and data projects while I build out Revstance and Meet Your Wardrobe. Independent fashion has been an intrinsic part of my life since childhood, and I'm looking forward to all of you being on this journey with us, helping make independent brands succeed. https://www.linkedin.com/in/muaznotiar/
Naveen. People and culture consultant in the fashion and beauty industry turned fashion entrepreneur. Fashion fascinates me because of its interactions with art and culture, history, social issues and yes, people. I believe everyone can define what fashion means intrinsically to them. I co-founded Revstance with the aim to make fashion accessible, inclusive and sustainable. https://www.linkedin.com/in/naveenakhund/
At Revstance we’re aiming to build community driven fashion. That means we aim to bring everyone along on this journey with us. From a consumers point of view, this means they get access to toolsets such as MYW to allow them to become conscious of their fashion decisions. From a brands point of view, they join a platform with a collegiate atmosphere, where not only do they get avenues for revenue, but they join a platform that is open to their feedback and is also happy to help with their own platforms outside of Revstance. We also bring brands on this journey with us, showing them what we are working on.
