#447 Resilience & Creativity: Lewi Brown's New Path in Fashion

In this episode, I sit down with Lewis ‘Lewi’ Brown, a retired professional rugby league player and now the creative force behind Earls Collection.Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, Lewi moved to Sydney in the early 2000s, where he played for the Cronulla Sharks, Sydney Roosters, and West Tigers feeder sides before making his NRL debut with the New Zealand Warriors. Throughout his career, he played for notable NRL teams, including the Penrith Panthers and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, and represented New Zealand.After retiring in 2018, Lewi founded Earls Collection, a luxury clothing brand inspired by sporting heritage, nostalgia, and the pursuit of being better. The brand’s name, 'Earl,' connects Lewi to his father and grandfather, both of whom tragically took their lives after battling mental illness. Following his father's passing, Lewi left his professional sports career to redefine the name 'Earl' and pursue a new dream. Join me as I delve into Lewi’s inspiring journey from the rugby field to the fashion world, exploring themes of resilience, creativity, and personal transformation.You can subscribe to the Mentor newsletter here: https://mentored.com.au/newsletter-sign-upJoin the Facebook Group.Follow Mark Bouris on Instagram, LinkedIn & YouTube.  Hosted on Acast.
