I have a deep interest in sustainable fashion, secondhand clothing and upcycling. I launched my brand Revival earlier this year.
London-based Revival is a fashion reconstruction brand dedicated to planet preservation through textile waste reduction and specialising in the reworking of discarded textiles. Conceptual limited edition capsule collections and exclusive pieces are released throughout the year and made entirely using reclaimed garments and fabric which are deconstructed and redesigned.
Our main aims are to reduce textile waste in the fashion industry, eradicate fast and disposable fashion culture and make textile education more accessible. My submission is specifically centred on my Ghanaian and Nigerian heritage and how that can be infused into modern sustainable/upcycled fashion using the medium of denim. I want to inspire other designers to embrace their heritage and share their stories through the clothes and art they create.
