    037 | The importance of innovation with Alberto Candiani of Candiani Denim

    54:56

    When it comes to Italians, their reputation for quality, ingenuity, and innovation is par for the course, and today’s guest is no different. Home to the world’s first compostable stretch denim, Candiani, a fourth-generation family business is a mainstay in the fashion world, working with the likes of Levies, Stella McCartney, Hugo Boss, among many other labels. Its leader, Alberto, great-grandson to Candiani’s original founder, developed a deep interest in product development and fabric engineering. His obsession with progress, innovation and sustainability in textiles has led his namesake business to develop its reputation as the greenest textile company in the blue World. Now with the development of Coreva, the world's first biodegradable denim, the company is taking strides to emphasize sustainability in denim production to reduce the post-life impact of the garments created from textiles sourced from their mill. I have to say, I learned a lot on this episode, much of which I thought I had a good understanding of, but Alberto truly is a nerd when it comes to the origins and evolution of what we know to be as “jeans”. This episode truly inspired me to be more creative, more passionate, and to have more fun doing what we love. I hope you find it to do the same for you. On this episode, Alberto joined me from Florence to talk about the evolution of Candiani, the importance of innovation in businesses, and how a casual trip to his regular macelleria in Milan turned into the creation of Coreva, which will revolutionize the denim world.

    035 | Tailoring Jeans with Ben Viapiana

    44:33

    When it comes to working with denim, there is nobody better than today’s guest, Ben Viapiana. Inspired by his father, who was a lifetime tailor himself, Ben spent his formative years learning about patterning, cutting and sewing by simply spending time at his dad’s shop, where he recounts doing many of his childhood chores. His exposure to the tailoring world, to machinery, to making, was something that carried through to early adulthood where he decided he wanted to continue on with his father’s legacy, but with his own twist and his own direction, which as you’ll learn later on, was a tad out of spite, but more so out of passion. His love affair with denim would start to take shape while he lived in Thailand for 10 years, hanging out at denim factories and making friends with local industry people. Eventually, he would return home to open his own studio, with a focus on creating a unique experience for his customers and taking the art of making jeans to a whole new level. Today’s episode features local Toronto maker Ben Viapiana. We kept it super simple on this morning episode talking all about Ben’s upbringing, his passion for denim and machines, and some of the basic lessons he wishes he knew as a young entrepreneur.

    034 | David Kollar: How to scale a fashion brand without funding (part 2)

    45:10

    One of the most common questions I hear from emerging designers, and entrepreneurs in general, is how do I scale my business from $0 to $1,000,000, and this week’s episode features the perfect person to walk us through how he built his multi-million dollar brand from scratch. Born in Slovakia, today’s guest had a difficult start to his life. He was a young immigrant to Canada, arriving with his mom at the age of 7 with very little money and nothing but a future full of hope. Like many immigrants, his childhood wasn’t easy, growing up in government housing for much of his life, where the circumstances of his environment placed negative pressures on him, causing him to struggle in school and eventually drop out. But this didn’t stop the young entrepreneur from trying to achieve his dreams, in fact, as you will learn from this podcast, he’s actually been able to use his upbringing as an advantage which has allowed him to create a business that has changed his life. His namesake clothing brand is now a multimillion-dollar company that has been worn by the likes of Shawn Mendes and Steph Curry, just to name a few, and has been featured in GQ, Complex magazine and many other media outlets. To me, it’s inspiring stories like that of today’s guest that truly provides hope to other aspiring designers that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance. But I know what you are all thinking...how the heck did he achieve such success? Tune in this two-part series with my man David Kollar where he spills the beans on his entire fashion journey including key mistakes he made that you need to avoid, how to manage the everyday stresses of building a business, and other key tactics to help you replicate his success like influencer marketing strategies, running Facebook ads, and more.

    031 | Beth Esponnette : A Perfect Fit - Unspun

    51:49

    If you guys are anything like me, shopping for jeans can be a real pain in the you know what. I experienced this recently when I ripped my favorite pair of selvedge denim right up and middle, and had to go on the hunt for a replacement pair. Finding the perfect pair of denim was no easy task, especially when you're a picky consumer like me who is very specific with regards to quality, manufacturing, and most importantly, fit. Thankfully, today’s guest set out with her co-founders to solve the problem of ill-fitting jeans at scale. Her start up, Unspun, automates the generation of custom-fit patterns from 3D body scans so that when you order denim from them, they fit to the exact mold of your body. Talk about solving a huge problem with one foul swoop! My guest today is the super smart Beth Esponnette, Co-Found of Unspun. Beth joined me to talk about how Unspun’s tech is the new way of buying perfect fitting jeans, the launch of their newest product, and how their dissolvable stitching is streamlining the upcycling process that will create a circular model moving forward.

    030 | Creating a Permanent Collection and Changing the Fashion Industry Through Transparency with August Bard Bringeus

    59:16

    When most people get into the fashion business, the goal always seems to be MORE. More styles, more inventory,  more sales, more growth. But today’s guest, along with his co-founder, are actually on the pursuit of less. Their brand, ASKET is Swedish menswear company on a mission to end overconsumption and restore value in the apparel industry which they achieved so far by stepping away from seasonal churn and instead focusing on a permanent collection. It’s a simple concept in theory but one that has proven to unlock a radical new way of working. Their new methodology has resulted in zero end of season overproduction, which means there’s no need for discounting, ultimately reducing snap-shopping decisions that contributes to the issue of overconsumption. This slow approach to retail is super refreshing and affords them the time to become accountable for their supply chain, which by the end of summer, will be completely transparent through what they call the Impact Receipt, which will outline the environmental impact of every single garment in their collection. On this episode of The Andrew Coelho Show, I'm joined by August Bard Bringeus, Co-Founder of Asket. We chatted about some pretty cool topics like the best time to raise growth capital, how to build out a solid PR plan, and the long-term vision he sees for the fashion and apparel industry at large.

    029 | A Story of Perseverance : Brian Chappon

    53:09

    Have you ever lost everything you owned to the point where you can carry it all around in a duffel bag? This week's guest did just that and actually ended up living out of a 24 hour Starbucks for a month. His story is truly inspiring and although not related to fashion in the slightest, his perseverance and rigour is the true essence of entrepreneurship, no matter what the industry. He started his career as a volunteer with NGOs, providing disaster relief in developing countries, and it was his work in that field led him to  job as a  consultant where he helped create innovative projects to build wealth, jobs, and opportunities in new markets within the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Despite his efforts to make good, the mix of extended international travel, stress, and commitment to marathon training took a toll on his health. After the recession of 2008 he hit max burnout and went from what felt like being on top of the world to becoming homeless and living in a 24 hour Starbucks in New York City. After shaking off the pain of failure he took a sabbatical to teach spinning in a high-end studio and it was during his time reflecting where he too notice to the mental and physical health issues that fellow road warriors faced while traveling, and the idea to create a health studio in an airport was formed. Despite that initial project not taking off, no pun intended, he pivoted his focus to his new venture "CENTRED Wellness”  the first app-based membership program dedicated to helping travelers focus on their wellness and overcome the ravages of travel during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Today I’m hanging out with Brian Chappon to chat about his incredible entrepreneurial journey and how he was able to battle through adversity to parle his passions into something impactful and meaningful.
