A grandmother's legacy

  • • Josefa’s grandmother is one of her biggest inspirations
  • • She has always loved creating unique clothes
  • • She founded Revenga House in June 2017

The first time Josefa Garcia Lozano thought of becoming a shirtmaker and a designer was during her childhood. Back then, her grandmother worked as a tailor and shirtmaker in a small village in Spain. She was the first person to provide her with training and taught her sewing and embroidery skills. She used to make clothes for pleasure during the weekends and in her free time before deciding to take a specialised course and found her own brand. The Revenga House was founded in June 2017 with the support of Josefa’s two sons. Many of her techniques stem from the know-how of the master shirtmaker Marc Crausaz from Geneva and it produces shirts, dresses and other custom tailored products with passion and attention to detail.

Tuxedo Front Pique Shirt

This bespoke women tuxedo shirt highlights subtly the finesse of our customer’s silhouette. It is mostly made of Swiss poplin, with the exception of the breastplate which is crafted with pique cotton from Sant-Gallen. The wing neck and the French cuffs reflect the black-tie spirit and the black buttons create a relevant contrast.
