Tony operates Tony the Tailor along Virginia Street in downtown Charleston, offering custom-made suits and men's apparel. He was first introduced to tailoring at a early age through his father, the late Joe Paranzino at Paranzino's Menswear. The family business provided him a rich creative environment to develop his skills. In 2003, he opened his own shop featuring a combination of his own tailored clothing and his favorite classic, iconic and hard to find pieces.
Tony will offer an in-depth discussion about entrepreneurship, understanding your customers, building a meaningful network and doing great work (and promoting the heck out of it.) Regardless of your career path, his business advice will resonate.
Generation Charleston, a committee of the Charleston Area Alliance, works to attract and retain young professionals to the Kanawha Valley through social networking, professional development and community outreach and empowering its members to create change that matters.
