She personally delivered my pieces pressed and ready to go. What I did not expect was for her to come prepared with all of her kits, tools, and sewing materials just in case any repairs or additions were needed on the spot...Once the fitting was finished, Chaendra also provided me with some helpful fashion tips and tricks for those pieces in my closet that I never touch. I highly recommended Chaendra and her expertise. She is strategic, smart, holds her vision and, pushes the envelope with each look."

I recently had the most mind-blowing experience with my favorite jean jacket, and I couldn't wait to spill the beans! ...
The ongoing communication and collaboration had me feeling like a fashionista. Revive Fashion kept me in the loop at every step, like a VIP insider to the jean jacket revolution. My jean jacket is now the talk of the town, thanks to this fashion resurrection. 10/10 would recommend for anyone who wants to turn their wardrobe into a canvas of endless possibilities!

Chaendra Gittens of Revived Fashion has blessed me with looks I never thought I would ever wear...I am a huge supporter of Chaendra and Revived Fashion, especially because not only does she work hard, she is unique in her craft. She creates amazing looks using pieces that were thought to be forgotten. She has proven that anything can be made out of anything. It just takes a vision and belief in oneself.

We believe in the mantra, "one man's trash is another man's treasure"! Our objective is to make recycling apparel and accessories fashionable by "reviving" each piece with our unique designs to give true fashion-lovers exclusive, one of a kind pieces that they can truly make their own (and that no one else will have). Originally founded in 2017, “Revived Clothing & Designs”, was born and officially soft- launched in the Spring.
Chaendra V. Gittens, has been working as a Fashion Stylist, Personal Shopper, and Style Blogger since 2008 and is still going strong working on a variety of projects to date.
She has worked on multiple published photo shoots (magazines, promo, etc.), fashion shows, movie sets, and music videos with the likes of signed models, actors, and upcoming music artists. Her style ranges from a mix of classic, retro-chic street style to editorial fashion for men and women.
Now solely owned and operated by Chaendra, there is a lot of excitement for what the future holds. New designs are said to be underway as we speak. The "Sand" collection, was launched in June 2021 and went live after the line's showing in "Startup Fashion Week"! the line has been also featured at the All About Women's Show, the National Women's Show (Ottawa and Toronto), and been featured in global publications such as "Glam Africa", "Trends & Blends", Vigour", and "Ellas" to name a few. Chaendra also gained recognition as a 2x nominee for the RBC Women of Influence: Female Entrepreneur of the year Award and the Canadian Choice Awards for her work with the line and fashion industry! This is just the beginning, but her vision is to continue bringing one of a kind designs to the public on a more international scale. This has already begun as Revived showed for the first time at New York Fashion Week in February 2024! Eventually, “Revived” wants to be known as an global brand, but until then, sky’s the limit.
"Art and passion will always bring the right people together."
