Now, with the Coronavirus first shutting down, then slowly re-opening and recently threatening to affect everyday life again, how can a betrothed manage the most important detail of her big day beyond saying "I do"?
    On this episode, Grace Hill talks with best friends and founders of The Own Studio, Jess Kaye and Rosie Williams, about all things bridal in a pre and post-Covid universe.

So, when she hired the first ever Worldwide Sustainability and Innovation Director at her eponymous brand, she looked to Claire Bergkamp. 
    Now the Chief Operating Officer at Textile Exchange, a global nonprofit that creates leaders in the preferred fiber and materials industry, Claire joins us to discuss the very important work being done to educate retailers on the ways they can help avert the ongoing climate crisis.

    How to optimize your retail AI ft. Michael Ross, SVP of Retail Sciences

    How to optimize your retail AI ft. Michael Ross, SVP of Retail Sciences

    As reported by Juniper Research, global retail spending on AI is expected to reach $7.3 billion annually by 2022. However, a survey by Sloan Management Review and the Boston Consulting Group found fewer than 40% of companies who have invested in AI had seen business gains from it in the previous three years. So how can retailers make the most of their AI investment?
    With the acceleration of digitalization and adoption towards digitization, retailers are learning quickly that their future depends on how they can leverage technology. But for an industry that’s been slower to adopt, retailers have entered uncharted territories on exactly how to get the most out of its retail AI. 
    Based on his co-authored article in the Harvard Business Review called “Why you aren’t getting more from your marketing AI”, Michael Ross, EDITED’s SVP of Retail Sciences, joins the podcast to share his knowledge of how companies need to use AI to see true value. With an extensive background in retail and technology, Michael is a leader in the industry as the former Co-Founder of both figleaves.com and DynamicAction, a leading retail analytics and AI company recently acquired by EDITED, as well as a non-executive Director of Sainsbury’s Bank and N.Brown. With today’s uncertainty in the retail landscape, Michael shares insight into the business opportunities retailers can get from their AI by simply asking the right questions.

    The psychology of fashion and how it impacts consumer behavior ft. Shakaila Forbes-Bell, Founder of Fashion is Psychology

    The psychology of fashion and how it impacts consumer behavior ft. Shakaila Forbes-Bell, Founder of Fashion is Psychology

    Ever wonder why dressing in certain colors boosts your mood? Or why do we seem to step into a time warp every year with trends from past decades on the runways? Well fashion brands are actually applying psychological theories and principles to encourage consumer spending.

    Despite the pandemic’s impact on retailers last year, the global fashion industry is projected to hit $2.25 trillion by 2025, according to Statista. With demand for apparel only getting stronger, understanding the psychology of fashion can ensure brands remain relevant to their consumer base. 
    To understand the connection between clothing and perception, we’re joined by Fashion Psychologist Shakaila Forbes-Bell, who shares her expertise on the psychology behind our fashion choices and how it can inform future trends especially as retailers and brands navigate the post-pandemic era. Besides founding Fashion is Psychology, a platform dedicated to making academic research into fashion psychology more accessible, Shakaila has also worked with global retail brands including Next, Sainsbury’s and AfterPay.
