FLASHBACK: 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.

FLASHBACK Series: Castelli’s Steve Smith Offers an Inside Look at The World Famous Heritage Cycling Brand and Its Revolutionary Cycling Apparel Design, Aerodynamics and Comfort

While we are OOO, enjoy some convos from our archives!

Steve Smith is the Global Brand Manager at Castelli, one of the world’s leading cycling apparel brands and yes, one of my favorites! On this episode of Marni on the Move, Steve and I talk all things cycling from the brands historical roots and influence in the cycling world, tracing all the way back to 19th century Italy to its game-changing performance cycling apparel including aerodynamics, weather protection, comfort and 2021 summer styles.

We discuss how Castelli has revolutionized design and functionality in performance cycling jerseys, jackets, shorts and kits, from introducing LYCRA® to the sport in 1977 and reinventing the bib short to designing its world famous Gabba race jersey, and translating this functionality and high tech design into clothing for everyday recreational cyclists and triathletes. Steve sheds light on the innovation process Castelli implements to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and design for the pros and beyond. He offers invaluable tips on dressing for cycling success for all weather and seasons, how to layer for long rides, and how to dress like a pro with great style.

Steve chats about his personal love of cycling, his favorite places to ride, the career path that led him to move to Italy for his current role at Castelli, where he lives, works and rides in Bassano del Grappa. We talk about the training and rides that fuel Steve for success, some key lessons he has learned from cycling, and what’s on his bucket list for 2021

183. Andrew “Bernie” Bernstein Talks Cycling, Safe Driving, & His Life Changing Accident

On July 20, 2019 Elite Cyclist and Velo Racer Andrew “Bernie” Bernstein was riding home from his local velodrome, when he was assaulted by a driver and left for dead in a ditch on the side of the road.  Thankfully he survived. Now he lives with an incomplete spinal cord injury and paraplegia. Today, through adaptation and hard work he is back on the bike in all new way.  I caught up with Bernie a few weeks ago, just before he purchased his new e-bike, a Specialized Turbo Creo, and I am excited to share, on July 11, 2021, he went out on his first long ride on his fave road.

During our conversation, Bernie goes into detail about his life-changing accident and his recovery process including his inspiring mindset and amazing physical therapy team and routine. He shares with me the incredible mental strength needed to overcome such a tremendous obstacle and his current journey back to cycling. Bernie dials me in to where his passion for cycling began and how he got into racing.

We talk about his career in media from journalism to PR and Paid Media, where he has worked in and around the outdoor and bike industries since 2006 and is currently Senior Account Director in Charge of Paid Media at globally renowned agency, TRUE Communications. He has been published in Men’s Health and Outside magazine, and he strives to use his platform to talk about his journey to overcome his injury, as well as speak about the importance of safe and responsible driving, which we talk about on the pod. We also do a deep dive into ablelism, a topic Bernie is passionate about, and his mission to empower people with the education on how to treat those with disabilities.

Bernie is an ultra-inspiring person and I am sure you will find this conversation very eye-opening and motivating. I hope it provides some insight into how we can keep each other safe on the move.

182. Tokyo 2020 Olympics U.S Triathlete, Katie Zaferes

Katie Zaferes is one of the world’s top triathletes on the U.S Olympic Triathlon Team competing in the Tokyo Summer Games.  We caught up a few weeks ago, just a few days after she placed on the U.S Team and was preparing for her journey to Tokyo.

Katie and I talk all things triathlon- training, nutrition, racing and how she is preparing for competition on the world’s biggest stage.  Katie shares how she discovered the sport of triathlon. She talks about what it’s like to travel all over the world for competition, and she details some of her most unforgettable race locations, and shares some of the mantras that power her through during tough conditions.  Katie tells me the story of how triathlon led her to meet her husband, and the beauty of getting to share her passion for sport with her loved ones.  Of course, I ask Katie all about her preparation and what she’s most looking forward to at this year’s Olympics.

Katie made her debut as an elite athlete on the triathlon scene back in 2013 since then she has won 23 World Triathlon Series medals, including six gold medals. She made the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team and won her first world championship in 2019. Katie is also a three-time medalist in mixed relay at the world championships, most recently taking silver in 2020. I so enjoyed my conversation with Katie, and I can’t wait to watch her crush the competition in Tokyo. Photos by Tommy Zaferis.

Kate gives me the scoop on how SRAM began, she chats with me about where her passion for cycling started, what she loves about the sport, and how she became one of the leading faces of SRAM. We also talk about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cycling industry, and how SRAM pivoted to accommodate the growing demand for bikes.

Kate highlights the incredible technology SRAM is known for and continues to innovate including the range of eTap electronic drivetrains, she shares all of the bells and whistles, and we talk about the learning curve to go from traditional to electronic. We also touch up on disc brakes and wheels, and Kate offers ideas on how you can level up your bike without buying a new one. She talks about the differences between components on road versus gravel bikes and gives me insight into what kinds of components are best for which riders.

Whether you are thinking about getting started or are already on eTap and have five bikes, you are going to love this convo and be inspired to hit the pavement or trails!

175. Agnieska Pilat On Machine Portraits, Robot Apprentices, and Her Unique Spin On Fitness

Agnieska Pilat is a globally renowned fine artist and technological portraitist. Inspired by the portraiture of traditional European depictions of royalty, but instead of capturing people, Agnieska paints the groundbreaking technology and machines that have catapulted our world into the modern age. She arranges  20th and 21st century machinery in formal compositions, to evoke the power that machines command in human society today. Like royal portrayals of noble ancestry, her portraits conceptually trace the lineage of 21st century robotics and artificial intelligence back to the steam-powered mechanisms of the Industrial Revolution.

On this episode, I chat with Agnieska about her unique vision and work, where her passion for painting began, the inspiration behind her work, how immigrating from communist Poland to America has shaped her perspective around entrepreneurship and the business aspect of being an artist. Agnieska shares her artistic processes and syncs up with me about the incredible and challenging realities of forging a name in the art world.  We talk about her recent Artist-in- Residnce at Silver Art Projects at We talk all about her apprentice and robot, Spot, and a new series she has been developing, B70, with Boston Dynamics, and of course, we talk about her unique approach on how she gets here workouts in!
