Interview @ Kolchagov Barba
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
We had a passion towards Fashion and design that passion brought us towards this Career path.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
We feel it is important that you pursue what you believe in and have faith in your abilities. We as designers were very inquisitive from the start and had a deep rooted sense of fashion. Once nurtured, our interests transformed from hobbies to actual professions. We believe as long as a person does what he or she loves, burning out can be minimized to a large extent.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Our story will perhaps be about how we met and clicked instantly. We met for the first time at the Paris fashion week in the year 2011. That’s when an idea was born which transitioned into a popular clothing brand with the label Kolchagov Barba.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
During the covid-19 pandemic, our brand worked tirelessly to make personal protective dresses for all the healthcare professionals. As a clothing brand, we considered it our duty to help make as many protective suits which would keep our front liners safe from the infection.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
We feel that in order to progress through life, it is important that you meet the right people who motivate you and support you along the way. I’m glad the two of us met. It allowed us to share our talent and ideas and create this venture together.
