A SARTORIAL REVOLUTION

RIOT IS AN ONLINE PLATFORM TO BUY & SELL UNIQUE, COVETABLE PRE-OWNED LUXURY FASHION.

We are here to change the narrative on secondhand fashion, uncovering pre-owned fashion finds that tell a story so that you can tell your own.

Established in 2017 out of Dubai, we believe there’s value in every woman’s closet and that well-made designer fashion – be it vintage or otherwise - deserves a second life. We have an edited point of view, hand-selecting each item on our site to ensure its quality, provenance and place in fashion history. We select items we love, in the hope that they will be reloved by you.

Carving out a more considered alternative option to fast fashion, we encourage women to build their unique personal style and micro-business out of shopping, selling what no longer serves them to give their clothes a new lease on life.

Ultimately, we believe that great design doesn’t get old, it just gets better with time.

Join the preloved party. Join RIOT.



OUR STORY

We are women with a deeply ingrained passion for fashion, seeking sustainable alternatives outside of the traditional fashion cycle.

“RIOT was borne out of a personal realization that I and pretty much every woman I know, were “hoarding” luxury designer items,” says founder Maya Talih. “There were thousands of dollars worth of assets lying around in our collective closets. The recognition that we could sell our pre-owned items (great items I might add!) on the second-hand market was not new, but we wanted to go about it a new way. We wanted to empower women to finance themselves by creating a micro-business out of their shopping habits. We envisioned a community of savvy fashion lovers buying, selling, and then repeating the process, making money, learning about fashion and what translates into fashion currency, and having fun. Breathing new life into “older” goods and changing the narrative around second hand from something frowned upon to really acknowledging it as a means to elevate your style in a sustainable manner.”

With an intent to do less damage to the environment without compromising on style, we set up RIOT as a platform to buy & sell curated fashion finds, celebrating personal style over trend, championing fashion in a sustainable way.





RIOT MANIFESTO

We believe in a sartorial revolution.
In disrupting the codes of cool and playing by new rules.
Where fashion is fresh and fierce. And style is never out of date.

We believe that second-hand is not a dirty word.
That authentic “fashion finds” deserve a second life.

Where smart meets savvy meets stylish meets sustainable.
Where looks are renewed, refreshed & rejuvenated.
Where you can afford luxe for less and look your absolute best.

We believe that a critical, discerning eye offers the best perspective.
And being selective is never irrespective.

We believe that perceptions are made to be broken and conscious minds need to be outspoken.
To change the game, one fashion finds at a time.

So, welcome to RIOT,
It's time to start a revolution of style.
