    S4 EP9: A Proper Designer ft. Melissa Battifarano

    S4 EP9: A Proper Designer ft. Melissa Battifarano

    Melissa has over 20 years of experience in apparel design. Episodes like this are the reason I love this podcast. It's often the people who are *not* consumer facing, who know the most about the business.
    A self-proclaimed knitwear expert, Melissa started her career in the "urban" category, moved into sportswear & contemporary and even designed Rihanna's first ever Fenty collection for Puma. Today she is the creative director of Diesel Sport working alongside Glenn Martens. 
    We talk about her extensive expertise in knitwear, the day she was poached to work for Sean "Puffy" Combs, why Wolford has such high-quality knits and the soft skills needed to work with celebrities.

    Five years ago, at the age of 29, Taylor Dorry decided to enroll in fashion classes to learn how sew. She started making clothes out of her home in South Florida. I discovered her on Instagram about a year ago and was immediately drawn to her silhouettes, sense of humor and unique narrative. Listen to see how it's going. This is a story of entrepreneurship and self discovery.

    S4 EP5: This is Cala ft. Andrew Wyatt

    S4 EP5: This is Cala ft. Andrew Wyatt

    Six years ago, Andrew Wyatt founded a fashion tech company called Cala. 
    Cala is a SAAS company that manages all of the backend logistics for designers. Essentially, you upload your design to the website and Cala will not only help you design it but will also produce it *and* ship it to your customers, for you. 
    It's technology that sounds too good to be true. Today, I ask Andrew a million questions about how the software works and we leaving no stone unturned, and he was able to answer every single one.
