Join the conversation to hear Stephanie’s story: from her early days at Goldman Sachs to her success in tech start-ups to the world of luxury fashion. 1 Atelier was born with a unique business model, leveraging technology and individualisation to reinvent contemporary luxury. Stephanie will share her perspectives on:

  • The value of Tech as a category disruptor o How Luxury as we know it is broken and needs to be re-designed
  • The importance of joy, originality and the creative spirit
  • Customisation as a change agent

Luxury fashion relies on strong storytelling, engagement, and connector skills to build a sustainability identity and to achieve 1 Atelier’s vision to go beyond carbon neutral to carbon negative - and always zero waste.
