In the summer of 2020, we set out to solve some of the business challenges brought to the forefront during a pandemic, climate change, and civil discourse. Our goal was to create a sustainable product that our community could use, and would also be a working project for educating our larger community. #HALOCollection #GlobalExecutiveBag
In its fifth year, we are excited to share Remodista's 2020 Women2Watch in Business Disruption Honorees. These women are solving challenges that are complex and forward thinking in all areas of direct-to-consumer global business. This program helps our community shine a spotlight on, and think through solutions for problems that require innovation. It brokers collaboration between subject matter experts and creates a cycle of feedback and shared insights. At the same time, we help curate and cultivate pioneer perspectives and up-and-coming voices in business. As they hone their future-thinking perspectives, we plug them into perspectives, connections and celebrations that elevate them. Join us at our premier Purpose Fashion and Beauty Week September 27th through October 3rd.
The custom-made Chanel outfit is tailored to enhance all the right features, and partnered with the perfect pair of Louboutin’s, it makes you feel like the powerful executive you are as you walk into that boardroom or step to the podium.

Remodista iLab Pitch winner - Sanctuary.ai
Written by Jerry Talamantes, Client Relationship Manager and Retail Strategist, Remodista
An exciting congratulations to Sanctuary.ai for winning Remodista's iLab Pitch Contest on July 24th at 1871. They enthralled both guests and VIPS with their innovative business ideas. The competition, which showcased- the new and the now, of women-led business innovation, was a compliment to Remodista’s Chicago Community Day. It's an event that attracts pioneer thinkers, who want to better understand disruption and innovation. Check out the video interview with Suzanne!
Remodista's Community Day in Chicago. This day consisted of our innovation-extracting Collective Think, a Circular Conversation, and our Experience Lab that helps us identify regional innovation and solutions. In the Collective Think, we extracted small bits of insights through a series of exercises we have developed over the years. After synthesizing the data, we share it back, in order to create a quickening of knowledge in our community. We do this in a multi-week content roll out, so you can absorb the information and then build a strategy from what you learn. The Experience Lab is interaction with retail and innovation with our sponsors and iLab Pitch Finalists in the midwest.
