Max Rubin ’17

Entrepreneur’s Blast from the Past Sparks New Business
As founders of Contempo Casuals, a women’s fashion empire based out of Southern California during the 1960s-1980s before being sold to Neiman Marcus, Max’s grandparents had an eye for fashion as well as a strong entrepreneurial spirit, both of which Max inherited. Before his grandfather’s death in 2019, Max collaborated with his him to bring original hand-drawn advertisements from the original company to create unisex t-shirts. Max, who is studying business administration at Chapman University, knew these prints would resonate with consumers nostalgic for Contempo Casuals. "I credit my high school experience at CH as a large part of who I’ve become today. The progressive environment encouraged me to think for myself and seek collaboration when necessary, two attributes that have helped establish the company. One particular professor that comes to mind is Mr. Morgan and his economics class. That class opened my eyes to financial knowledge, how to be financially responsible as a young adult, and other career paths that I could create for myself."
