Love, Loss + Recovery

I am honored to introduce my first episode with Cynthia Rowley, who is an American fashion designer and leading lifestyle brand. In this interview, Cynthia opens up publicly for the first time about the tragic loss of her beloved first husband. The song she chose is Remember, a song I wrote about the loss of my beloved older brother. We share our stories of our greatest love, our deepest loss + the hope filled recovery that follows. Her beautiful, heart-wrenching transparency will open hearts and minds to things we might all be afraid to address. Grieving is the hardest part but grieving is when healing begins. The memories are all we have to keep them alive. And so we Remember.

  • The importance of taking the data points about the average consumer’s needs and beliefs and making the brand’s point of view clear through its actions, such as having Halima Aden as a Muslim American model 
  • Being open and engaging in conversations with consumers when campaigns take an unexpected term, and how honestly and accountability should be values of any brand
  • The importance of keeping track of supply for brands that sell primarily direct
  • How Cynthia Rowley uses data points to make changes to distribution, production, and supply chain to fill consumer demands and to create limited editions of popular styles to bring in new customers as well as repeat customers
  • The struggle for brands to produce the quantity and quality digital content to keep the brand’s message clear without getting stale, and how Cynthia Rowley’s studio spaces and influencer network allow for a wealth of relatable content to be produced without having to plan out tightly structured content
  • How big data can potentially be used to marketing or customer service actions, and how the evolution of data collection has influenced decision making
  • Ways chat bots and video calling can extend the brand’s ability to provide recommendations, convenience, and a deeper human experience between the consumer and brand when engaging with direct sales
  • The importance of referrals and word of mouth growth for a brand like Cynthia Rowley, and how Allie plans to utilize affiliates, influencers, and social media to get the word out organically to build the brand’s stature organically
  • How first-order profitability has given Cynthia Rowley the flexibility to grow and make actions that aren’t necessarily scalable at its own pace while focusing on brand loyalty and referrals
  • Why strategic parameters with tight guidelines along with a focus testing and analysis has evolved into a successful network of influencers
  • Allie’s background in the beauty industry and extensive digital/e-commerce experience, and how her partnership with Cynthia’s artistic and active lifestyle backgrounds intersect and why their partnership is so strong
  • New ways the brand has been connecting with their consumers, such as the new podcast
  • Plus, some off the grid questions with Allie about how she got started on the path her career that led her to being a brand manager, how that work is like running a marathon, and her intensive note-taking

Famed designer Cynthia Rowley is perhaps most well known for her namesake clothing brand. However, since she launched her label in 1983, she has expanded from clothing into everything from home furnishings and tech accessories to surfing apparel. A true artist at heart, Cynthia is constantly innovating, networking, and paving the way in the fashion world. Did you know she was one of the first designers to do a collaboration with Target?

Listen in as Monica and Cynthia talk about choosing the right partners to collaborate, starting a network from scratch, how to stay relevant with your brand in an ever-evolving industry, supporting other female entrepreneurs and how to motivate employees. They also discuss what they've given up along the way to achieve success and how to balance being a parent and entrepreneur.

“For anyone who wants to start a company, it’s never been easier: you don’t need a store, you don’t even need an office space.” - Cynthia Rowley.
