Meet Your Instructor
My name is Tad and I’m a fashion business nerd. I love the business of fashion because it’s complex. I’m equally fascinated by aesthetics, business, and technology. I live with my wife, the pianist and composer Renara Akhoundova, in Paris, France.
I've helped and studied hundreds of brands, and I've taken a brand from a cottage industry to a 7-figure international business.
I want to see more purposeful brands created by passionate people with strong values. Brands that can challenge the influence of the big conglomerates and change the fashion industry for the better.
That's the reason I created BUILDFUTUREPROOF, a training platform for founders of independent fashion brands. Next-Level Fashion Branding is the first of several programs scheduled for launch in 2023-2024.
"This is THE course for those who want to uncover their unique competitive advantages and even learn how to turn their weaknesses into strengths. I like Tad's presentation style, and the genuine way in which he shares his own experience. He shows us how to embrace our uniqueness and turn it into a product which seizes on a market opportunity."
Who This Course is For
📚 You want the ultimate step-by-step system to help you build the foundation for a successful brand in any fashion niche: high fashion, streetwear, activewear, accessories, footwear, underwear or anything in between. You want to transform and educate yourself before beginning production, because you understand the power of a strong founder-led brand.
📚 You want to build a unique, purpose-filled, and futureproof brand. A brand which stands out in the market and reflects your values, influences, and passion.
📚 You want success and you want to prepare thoroughly for your launch, but you want to do it fast. You're willing to pay for the guidance you need to save thousands of hours and avoid costly early mistakes. You're also willing to do the work to build the business of your dreams.
Who This Course is Not For
🛑 You just want to game the market by creating a brand you feel no connection to. If you're just looking to make a quick buck chasing a passing trend, this course is not for you. Building futureproof means building something to last.
🛑 You believe your brand strategy is already perfect, and you only want to start manufacturing and trying to sell your products. You also believe you will be the lucky one who avoids the common mistakes which wreck brands before they even have a chance.
🛑 You believe you can bypass the process of developing an authentic connection with yourself, doing market research, and creating a brand strategy – and somehow get lucky without doing the necessary work.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have access to the program & when does it start?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you will have unlimited access to this program for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.
We are currently in the pre-launch period (thus the deep discount). Content delivery has already begun and will continue steadily to completion. As soon as you enroll, you'll get access to the Kajabi Learning Platform and Brand-Builder Community.
Can't I learn all of this on YouTube?
I love YouTube. It's my favorite place for entertaining and up-to-date fashion content. I support three different fashion content Patreons (Bliss Foster, Understitch, and Fashion Roadman).
And yet, it's nearly impossible to educate yourself systematically in preparation for building your own brand. It's easy to waste hundreds of hours there searching and putting off decisive action. I designed this course to take you from Point A to Point B in the shortest possible time, while calling you to act on what you learn in each module.
What is your time worth? Do you want to be entertained, or do you want to get to work bringing something unique and beautiful into material reality?

If you're an experienced entrepreneur, you've probably had some successes and some failures. I don't know anyone who gets it right every time. Next-Level Fashion Branding will provide you with a guide to check your work by as you build your next business. It will help you see your brand-building process from new and different angles, and increase your chances of long-term success.
