Interview @ XIVI (xivi.official)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Fashion has always been an interest of ours. We wanted to do something that presented classiness and casualness all in one, and plus we didn’t want to wait around till COVID died off, so we just took a leap of faith and launched XIVI amidst the chaos, and here we are!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
What worked for us may not work for everyone, but with that being said, being true to your brand and knowing what you want to produce from that is paramount. We wanted a certain look, a certain feel to our brand and we also wanted to use certain materials to produce our goods. It was difficult to do things differently because there’s always a factor of ‘what-ifs’, but we just went for it with careful planning. Always remember to just stay true to your brand and you’ll find it easier to thrive.
None of us can 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?
The XIVI team has just been a great big family from the start. We always shared a vision and supported each other through each meeting, each setback, and will continue to be our best selves with one another because that’s what our brand is about.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Since the brand’s launch, we didn’t just want to sell men’s clothing. We wanted to bring a change to the environment and we do that by using environmentally-friendly material, recycling clothes and giving some off to charity. We want our consumers to do the same so this could be done on a larger scale.
Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Try to leave Earth a better place than when you arrived” – Sidney Sheldon.
This specific quote is something all of us in the XIVI team can relate to because after all, our brand focuses on helping the environment.
