CC002: Creating a Sustainable Swimsuit Brand from Scratch | feat. Veronica Droulia


Show Notes

Have you ever had a dream or vision for your own clothing brand? Want to know what it takes to build an apparel brand from scratch? We’re talking with Veronica Droulia, Co-Founder of NOA The Collective on how to make that dream come to life.

From sustainable fabric to manufacturing to design to company foundations, we’re jumping into the process Veronica and her partners created that made a speedy name for themselves in a saturated space, all while holding true to their integrity and core values. Did we mention they partner and incorporate designs based on collaborations with local New Orleans philanthropies that support various community improvement initiatives like glass recycling, fighting coastal erosion, and finding good homes for misplaced pets? Can we say super suits?!
