Respect, love and
Growing up, my parents taught me that life revolves around three core values: respect, love, and sincerity. These words have been a thread throughout my adult life. Through life’s experiences and opportunities, I have grown into the person I am today. I have been lucky enough to be able to travel a great deal, both privately and for work. I saw that it’s not common practice for people to treat each other with decency and respect, or to show compassion and kindness to one another. Let alone any form of sincerity in intentions. I felt heartbroken having witnessed situations where I couldn’t help or intervene.
These experiences made me appreciate my core values even more and I learned not to take them for granted. I cannot escape the conclusion that is: one’s decisions and choices have a far greater impact than what meets the eye. A couple of years ago I made the courageous decision to quit my job in an industry I had been working in my entire career. Before this choice, I had developed a great interest in sports. It wasn't just a way to unwind, but also perfect to organize my thoughts and to regain some energy. During that time, I developed the idea to create a durable and sustainably produced sportswear line.
Timeless athleisure wear
After long and intensive research, I came to the outcome that there wasn't a feminine, colorful and high-quality active-wear line offered on the Dutch and Belgium markets. I am somehow convinced that you perform better when you feel better, which is also the case for sportswear. My mission became to develop timeless athleisure wear, in which you not only feel good but also look good and do good. All the designed pieces can easily carry over to the streets but are also performance-oriented and consciously made. Unlock the best version of yourself in and out of the gym. I am proud to say that all the core values that are so important to me are translated perfectly in the REVIVE collection. With respect for our environment, with love and appreciation for every living being and with sincere thankfulness for all the people that were a part of this dream!
