#91: Celebrating where you are today, loving your failure and rebounding to success with Mahrzad Lari the co-founder and Creative Director of Wide The Brand

April 30, 2021

This week Samantha chats with Mahrzad Lari (@mahrzadlari), co-founder and creative director of Wide The Brand. Ever since he could remember, Marz has had a flair for fashion and illustration. He has always been the heaviest kid in school, add to that the fact that the only clothes that fit him were pieces from big box stores. Unconsciously, this is what fired his obsession with fashion. He wanted to learn how to design and construct garments, and so he started playing with patterns, different fabrics and began creating things for himself that he could feel proud wearing. For 10 years, he learned to construct and assemble luxury garments, which brought him to work for one of Canada’s leading luxury fashion houses. He mastered cut and proportion, and the intricate art of draping fabric to a body. He wants to share this feeling through confidence, pride, acceptance and self-respect with the wider men of the world.

The two discuss the importance of failure on the road to success, their lifelong friendship and how staying true to who you are, dedicated to your passion and getting back up to keep going leads to success.
