    032 | How to become a successful artist from scratch with Anthony Ricciardi

    It’s often said that you are the product of the 5 most people that you spend your time with, and if I had to redraft my top 5, my guest would definitely be part of that group

    This dude is truly inspiring, encouraging, and super positive, and his attitude towards building a business is one that everyone should try and embody.

    It’s not everyday someone can quit their job at a top real estate investment fund and turn out a successful full-time career as an artist. His path is definitely an unconventional one, which just goes to show you that if you put your mind to something and put in the work, that your dreams can definitely come true.

    This Toronto-based artist has curated large-scale artwork and clothing for notable celebrities such as Demi Lovato, Bad Bunny, Post Malone and Shaq and has collaborated with major brands such as Disney and Adidas.

    My guest today is my guy Anthony Ricciardi. He joined me on the pod to chat about fatherhood and its impact on his mindset, how he built his brand from scratch, and how he randomly ended up on stage with superstar rapper Post Malone.

    Before I geared up for this interview I used my french press using beans they sent me from one of the dopest roasters from across the country.

    Bean Bundle makes it so easy for people like me who drink tonnes of coffee every single day but love to try beans from different roasters.

    The process is pretty simple...you just visit beanbundle.com, choose how much coffee you want on a monthly basis, medium or dark roast and they ship you different beans from the latest roasters on a monthly basis.

    The best part is if you live in Canada they ship to you absolutely free and if you sign up using the code BUNDLE10 you’ll save 10% your subscription. Now pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy this week's episode.

    031 | Beth Esponnette : A Perfect Fit - Unspun

    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

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

    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

    029 | A Story of Perseverance : Brian Chappon

    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.

    A Holiday Message from Andrew

    A Holiday Message from Andrew

    Hi Everyone, ⁣

    ⁣Andrew here and before we all jump into the holiday break, I wanted to take a second to thank you all for being a part of this incredible podcasting journey I set out on in 2020.⁣

    Although this year has been super challenging for many of us, I am super grateful for the incredible relationships I have been able to make with both my guests and my fans, and its these interactions that inspire me to keep up with the episodes.⁣⁣

    When I started podcasting, I had no idea what I was doing. I had no experience recording, editing or even publishing a podcast, but with your support and encouragement, I was able to put out 27 episodes which I hope inspired and encouraged you to preserve in your own respective journeys, especially during these unprecedented times.⁣ ⁣

    I hope that we all get to turn the page on 2020 and look ahead to a more prosperous 2021.⁣⁣

    From the bottom of my heart, I wish you all a safe holiday season and the happiest of New Years, however, you chose to celebrate this holiday season.⁣

    ⁣I am super excited to be back in the new year with some new guests, some great stories and some helpful insights.⁣

    ⁣Love you all!⁣

    ⁣-Andrew ⁣

    028 | Sustainable Manufacturing with Joey Pringle

    028 | Sustainable Manufacturing with Joey Pringle

    One of the greatest joys I get from hosting this podcast is meeting some incredibly inspiring people, with the goals and ambitions that can reshape our industry.

    Today’s guest is one of those people. A North London native, his first break in fashion occurred in Australia where was an accessories designer for Crumpler. Upon graduating with a BA Honours in furniture and product design, he relocated to Vancouver, Canada where he spent eight years as a technical bag developer for Mountain Equipment Co-op, and most recently as the accessories lead for one of Canada’s most accelerated start up fashion brands TenTree.

    During his time at TenTree, his role gave him the opportunity to visit factories overseas. On his travels to Vietnam and China, he had a meeting that would change the course of his career. And more importantly, change the way in which Chinese factories will operate in the future.

    What was supposed to be a routine factory audit, became an opportunity to take over a factory to implement a new manufacturing model that builds on sustainability, transparency, and raising consciousness.

    My guest today is Joey Pringle, the founder of Veshin Factory. He joined me all the way from the UK to talk about how he’s transitioning with his new life changing decision, his plans to help rebuild a sustainable manufacturing culture, and uncovering the misconceptions of Chinese manufacturing.
