In episode 137, Kestrel welcomes Pierre Nicolas Hurstel, the founder of REMODE, to the show. A conference that is meant to unite fashion brand leaders and industry-wide professionals to inspire solutions for growth and innovation, Remode’s inaugural event is taking place on November 13th and 14th, 2018 in Los Angeles.

“The future for brands is sustainable, vertical, omnichannel, purposeful - and this future has started now actually, because thanks to the incredible innovations that are now available, it is now possible for brands to do that at the same time, and sometimes the same technology can help solve both sustainability and retail problems.”
- Pierre Nicolas Hurstel, Founder of ReMode


In this episode, Pierre shares more on his background and what led him to want to build ReMode. Additionally, he outlines a selection of the panels and speakers he’s looking forward to hosting at this year’s inaugural event.

Given the cost of entrance to ReMode, Kestrel asks Pierre to share his thoughts on accessibility to the conversation. They discuss the importance of investing in sustainability from a business perspective, and how larger companies must allocate finances to research and development in this area as well.
