What a year it has been!
With 2012 coming to an end, we’d like to take a look back
at all that Revolver has experienced in these past twelve months.
Remember the Triangle Tweed Ride?
We supported this historic tradition by co-hosting a Tap into Tweed party
with Raleigh Vintage and dedicating two weeks of blogging to terrific tweed outfits.
Although the event was postponed due to rain, we had a blast seeing all the dapper men and fabulous ladies dressed in their finest tweed ensembles.
Will there be another Tweed Ride in March 2013? We sure hope so!
In April we hosted the Art for Animals trunk show,
featuring pet portraits by Amy Yeager and handmade creations by Marilyn Tilley,
in support of Best Friend Pet Adoption.
Pavlov’s Dogs came with their delicious (hot) dogs
so everyone could be full and have fun!
The following month we found ourselves hosting an event
in support of Dress for Success Triangle NC.
The Revolve Your Wardrobe clothing swap was a great success!
We couldn’t have done it without all of you
and we hope to do it again, with even more attendees, this coming year!
In June we welcomed the fifth edition of The Raleigh Typhoon scavenger hunt.
We had all sorts of characters coming in to buy House of Swank‘s 919 Y’all pins
and take pictures with our mannequin and props.
What a crazy day that was!
Although we calmed down over the summer, we didn’t stop moving.
Revolver dressed photo-shoots for Social magazine and Carolina Style magazine:
our In-house Stylist was even featured on the Street Style page for Carolina Style!
Our stylist also used Revolver clothing to work with photographer Adam Wamsley.
Local publication Pack Fashion,
produced by students in the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University,
also sourced apparel from Revolver for their spring and menswear editorials!
Of course, we can’t forget the major shoot for Revolver
filmed by Victor Chavez.
He did a wonderful job at capturing the diverse style of Revolver
and videos can be seen here & here.
Thank you to all the models who made this possible
and a big thanks to Victor!
As fall came around, we got amped for the third annual Hopscotch Music Festival!
To honor this Raleigh tradition,
we showed you our favorite ensembles for such an event
for both girls and guys.
Tickets for Hopscotch 2013 go on sale the first of February.
Will we see you there?!
In October, we said Adios to our stylist as she flew off to Barcelona for the weekend.
She shared her experience via Revolver
as she showed us her packing process,
the trends in Spain, what she wore during her excursions,
and all the tourist sights to see.
Our final event of the year was the My Mother’s Attic vintage sale.
Featuring vintage goods from one of our favorite consignors,
the event brought together pieces from the past with people of the present.
What a wonderful celebration of our love for anything vintage!
Those of you who attended asked us to hold the event again:
keep your fingers crossed and it just may happen!
We’d also like to reflect on some of the major trends we saw in 2012;
like the monochromatic look seen at Givenchy
or the gilded styles of Dolce and Gabbana.
Coral made a splash this summer
and the 1920’s have been the inspiration for many holiday parties.
We can’t wait to see what trends come in 2013!
Happy New Year! We’ll see you in 2013!
