Letter from Founder

Truth be told, growing up and until quite recently I was living a life completely opposite of what can be considered “sustainable”. I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela where recycling wasn’t a “thing”, or maybe I just did not care enough. Regardless, I always saw myself as a good person. I enjoyed living a balanced and healthy life, spending time with people I loved, building a professional career, feeling and looking good. Overall I cared about being happy.

More recently in my life, because of different experiences, I entered a journey of mindfulness and self-awareness that opened up a whole new universe to me. I started to become more conscious of myself, of my actions and their consequences. I started to realize that everyone, everything is interconnected, that the universe is one and I was not isolated from the social and environmental issues affecting us. It became clear to me that if we treat our planet and other people with love and respect, we’d receive love back. If we abuse and exploit our resources, sooner or later it will come back around.

As part of this journey, I began to learn about sustainability and getting intrigued about this topic. Something that seemed to complicated was in reality so simple: we should work towards a way of life where we are not hurting other people or our planet. I started to realize of the harm we are causing to the natural resources of this Earth, our home, and to other human beings. This really affected me, and it also made me wonder how I had not seen this before. I realized I want to be part of a world filled with love and harmony, and it all had to start with me. I could not expect others to change if I didn’t, so I started to commit towards realistic changes in my lifestyle.

During this ongoing learning process, I also encountered some judgement and expectations from more experienced people, which almost discouraged me altogether despite my commitment to this cause. It was then when I realized that demanding, expecting, informing people about sustainability are not necessarily the most effective ways to achieve results. I thought it would be more effective to spark people’s interest, making them think, feel and inspiring them to make a change from within, a real change. It’s not about enforcing answers; it’s about getting people to ask the questions. This is how MODE REVOLUTION was born. I’ve always been very passionate about fashion and style, as a way to express myself. Using this virtue for the good of our planet became exhilarating.

It’s my desire and intention to meet everyone, including myself, where we’re at, not to judge us but to inspire us. I personally have not changed every aspect of my life, on contrary. What I can say is that my life is now more fulfilling than ever and that I aim to keep growing every day towards this direction. My purpose is for others to feel the same joy and satisfaction from their own personal growth in becoming more conscious human beings.
