Dawna is a Texas Native and has shopped consignment all of her life. She was involved in opening a consignment shop in the early 80’s with her mom where her dream of owning her own shop began.
Her mom, Merna, now helps Dawna in her backroom where the processing and pricing is done and helps keep it running smoothly. She has always been inspired by responsible and fashionable recycling and has wanted a wonderful wardrobe without paying retail prices.
Dawna ventured out of a career from corporate America into a much more enjoyable path as the owner of Revente – Women’s Designer Resale 13 years ago. Her many years of business experience and working with customers and consignors has allowed her to maintain relationships and continued growth in the resale business. She really enjoys having both her boutique and residence in the Lakewood area and loves sharing her life with her beautiful German Shepherd, Nikki.
Ruth has worked at Revente for 6 1/2 years. The loves of her life are her family, her flowers and none of us know how she continues to keep up with her two granddaughters…they keep her young and active. When not at the store, she enjoys traveling the world from walking the Great Wall of China to enjoying the beaches in Brazil. Ruth is always getting new ideas on design, fabric, fashion and jewelry. Throughout her life, she has worked on runway shows in Paris and Milan with great fashion icons such as YSL, Versace and Christian LaCroix. Ruth loves sharing her experiences with customers.
Amanda is a Texas native that has a great love of the natural world and urban spaces. After being part of the Revente family for five years she left to pursue her love of learning by completing her Master’s degree in geography. She is currently working at Revente as a green fashionista and photographer while also teaching geography at TWU. Her love of nature and the world’s cultures informs her earthy eclectic aesthetic.
Alicia always loved finding great deals at Revente and was thrilled when she found out there was an opening for her. After years of homeschooling her two sons, she was ready to get back into the fashion world. She has a background in merchandising and apparel design so she knows good quality and fit when she sees it. Alicia describes her style as classic with a little retro funky twist here and there. She loves helping our customers find just what they need no matter what their style.
We love seeing our customers continue to come back once they discover the personal shopping experience they receive from each of our fashion consultants at Revente.
