About

Revivalist began in August of 2013. After being exposed to the pressures, expectations, and unrealistic image of the fashion industry, we felt led to make a change. Inspired by elements of the past, our goal is to create clothes for women that give back dignity, confidence, joy, and genuine beauty. Our brand comes from the heart of wanting to see women encouraged through fashion and celebrated for their uniqueness.

Our clothing is a little bit retro, a little bit modern, and always flattering to the everyday woman. We focus on accentuating the woman’s figure in a tasteful perspective through clean lines and vintage shapes. We are captivated and influenced by past aesthetic, whether it be a time period, movement, or single moment. From this initial idea, we incorporate modern design to enhance, yet appreciate, what has already been created.

When working to make clothing at an affordable price, production overseas is typically suggested. At Revivalist, we knew that if we were going to pursue our dream, we were going to support American made apparel. Producing a clothing line domestically means we get the opportunity to contribute to local businesses, ensure employees are being fairly treated, and provide the highest quality product. 

Our line is being produced in our own backyard of Nashville, Tennessee. The manufacturers that we have selected have become more than just business relationships, but also friends. Revivalist takes pride in knowing where our clothes are being made, knowing who is making them, and being close enough to drop in to check on the production progress. Based on these reasons, Revivalist guarantees that our manufacturers are highly regarded, have impeccable skills, and are time efficient. 

Backing this project will not just support the re-imagining of beauty and fashion, but help support local artists and American made products. 

Our original designs give each silhouette a little pop. Our prints combine images from the past with modern design to create new, fresh, and unique pieces. Each print is designed with existing staple pieces in mind to make an ordinary outfit unique.

We see fashion as more than just material, but it's a suit of armor for women to do what they are called to do with class, dignity, and strength. Revivalist was created with women in mind. We are driven to make clothes that refine and dignify women, while not compromising femininity and individuality. Our clothes have been crafted to evoke joy, happiness, confidence, and freedom. For Revivalist, our mission is not just to create another mold for women to fit into, but to accommodate their lifestyle and magnify their existing beauty.

If we hit our goal, your money will go directly into the manufacturing and production of Revivalist. This includes purchasing fabric, digitally producing our custom prints, hiring a team of seamstresses, grading each garment, and opening our online store to the public. Your money will also allow us to produce a small run of each garment in four different sizes, making more product available for your purchase.

By raising $25,000, we will not only be able to produce our collection, but provide more options. With the added funding, we will produce an additional color option per item. Introducing new colors will allow you the ability to pair more outfits and expand your shopping experience. 

Risks and challenges

No need to worry! We work in a challenging industry and welcome the opportunity to solve problems that arise.

We will communicate with both our backers and manufacturer throughout the campaign to ensure the fulfillment of our timeline stays true. The main risk that can occur with any project similar to this is delays in materials and production.

We have been working hard with our manufacturers and suppliers to mitigate this risk. Working with a local manufacturer has allowed us to stay connected to the operations and communicate efficiently. Our team is confident that we can adapt and respond to any reasonable situation in order to provide our supporters with quality products. We pride ourselves in providing great customer service and promise to communicate frequently and openly with you.
