  • It’s not just Mobile- it’s Mobility. The more we step into mobile, the more we realize it is more about the mobility of our new consumers than it is a bout the device.  It is apparent that mobility is interconnected with retail. But what is being done to shape this rapidly changing environment?  Remodista has carved out a space where we are building a forum for retail leaders across the entire ecosystem, but narrowly focused on beauty, fashion, home, higher-end, luxury retailers and brands.  We believe these retailers have similarconsumers and a desire to have exclusivity.  Burberry doesn't want to be on stage or collaborating with and Walmart.
