Paskho on 'Shark Tank': What is the cost, who is the founder and how the brand helps underserved communities
Featured on Oprah Winfrey's 'Oprah's Favourite Things 2020' list, the brand has already been making waves!
When it comes to clothing and style, everyone has their own unique, eclectic taste, as it is an opportunity to showcase to the world who you are. However, with the dire effects of fast fashion regarding climate change and unlawful labour practices, consumers are now increasingly aware of large brands' effect on society. Furthermore, with people embracing the idea of sustainable fashion, there is a need for clothing rich in design and conscious about their practices.
In the wake of change, brands like Paskho aim to create a holistic experience where fashion and sustainability meet to help a greater cause. While the brand has started to gain attention, Paskho is now ready to level up -- with the hope that Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Kevin O'Leary and Daymond John can help them grow exponentially!
What is Paskho?
As per the brand's website, Paskho is a clothing brand focused on battling the impacts of racial and social inequality in the United States. The brand's focus is to help underserved communities by giving them jobs and maintaining sustainable practices. As per the brand's website, "Paskho is built from the ground up on principles of thoughtful, holistic design. Every stitch, the ergonomic fit of our clothes, and the jobs we create in underserved communities are all designed to have a better impact. Great design is what makes our clothes so comfortable, so stylish, and allows you to feel so good wearing them –– knowing that your purchase helped to employ an American Maker and combat social injustice. This is what it means to make clothes like they matter."
Who is the founder?
Patrick Robinson is the founder and CEO at Paskho.com. As per his LinkedIn Page, Robinson is a creative leader and design innovator who over 25 years of experience leading brands such as Giorgio Armani, Anne Klein, Perry Ellis, Paco Rabanne, and Gap.
Paskho was born out of greater need with such vast expertise when he realised there was nothing like it in the industry. "I started Paskho because I was compelled to design a better product, and a better business. I needed my industry to do more for struggling communities than catchy slogans, and I couldn't wait any longer for someone to do something –– so we launched our Community-Made Initiative. Our goal is to bring 100% of our manufacturing back to the United States. We're creating jobs in communities that have had their livelihoods inhumanely stripped from them in the name of higher profits and cheaper products." he explained on the brand's website.
What is the cost and where to buy Paskho clothing?
You can purchase clothing from the brand via the website. Basic clothing retails from $48 onwards. The brand is going relatively well, seeing that customers appreciate the process that goes into creating sustainable clothing. One of their most popular products 'Serene - Ultra Comfortable Travel Pants' has largely positive reviews. One consumer wrote -- "I really enjoy Patrick's products. Just knowing they are made with care and concern, helps me to appreciate them all the more. These pants are another added addition to my growing collection of Paskho pants. Thank you to the entire team for unwavering passion for perfection."
Where is the Paskho now?
Paskho is currently doing relatively well for itself, seeing that, it has been slowly and steadily gaining coverage in the media. The brand recently posted an article about them featured in the New York Times as well. Paskho also made it to 'Oprah's Favourite Things 2020' list, with their Serene-Ultra Comfortable Pants being featured under the 'Stylish Gems' collection.
Who will steal the deal?
When it comes to a retail-based brand such as this one, all eyes are definitely on Emma Grede, the Founder & CEO of Good American. She is the most likely candidate to take the bait, as she is an expert in the field, being the woman behind Kim Kardashians SKIMS and Khloe Kardashian's Good American.
