147. Cynthia Rowley On Fashion Through The Lens Of Adventure

When someone told todays Marni on the Move podcast guest, globally renowned fashion designer, Cynthia Rowley, that she couldn’t print on a wetsuit, she went on to design countless super chic, functional, fabulous styles, fueled by her passion for surfing!

Cynthia Rowley is a visionary, pioneering, award-winning designer and founder of namesake lifestyle brand built on the philosophy that fashion should be an adventure. The brand’s signature pretty-meets-sporty assortment features ready-to-wear, surf and swim, fitness, accessories, and home decor as well as exclusive collaborations with like-minded brands

During our conversation, Cynthia shares how her passion for adventure, fun, and fashion has influenced her many designs and are the overall spirit of the brand—from her super stylish wetsuits, her surfboards, roller skates, yoga mats to her uber popular Cindy Down Puffer Coat and her fabulous dresses, flare pants, and PJ’s–all with her signature vibrant prints, color and style.

We talk about her mission to empower women and how through her brand, she aims to inspire women everywhere to take risks and live life fearlessly; how her brand pivoted at the beginning of COVID to truly meet the need of her customers, designing essentials for working at home and spending more time outdoors; her terrific podcast with her daughter, Kit Keenan, the Ageless podcast; and how as an entrepreneur and founder she continues to innovate and ebb and flow with the times.

Known for their nomadic pop-up retail concepts, the collection is sold in Cynthia Rowley boutiques nationwide and online at www.cynthiarowley.com, as well as select specialty retailers, affiliates, and global partners.
