Is REVOLVE a Fast Fashion Brand?

Yes, REVOLVE is a fast fashion brand.

REVOLVE is a US-based fashion platform, which serves hundreds of countries around the world. Co-founded by two tech students, Michael Mente and Mike Karanikolas, the digital department store is home to many well-known brands, and sustainable brands, as well as REVOLVE’s own lines.

REVOLVE, and its menswear site REVOLVEman, makes around $400 million in sales annually.

Unfortunately, when it comes to sustainability, the REVOLVE sites provide no information with the exception of what is legally required. As the business is registered in California, this is just the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act.

Just like ASOS, if you are going to shop on REVOLVE, go for better independent designers (and why not shop with them directly instead?)

Transparency Rating: 2/100
