How to Unlock Innovation with Emma Grede of Good American
From the time she was a child in East London, Emma Grede knew she wanted to work in fashion. After a long career at the intersection of fashion and entertainment, Grede now sits at the helm of Good American, the fashion label she co-founded with Khloe Kardashian in 2016. The inclusive fashion brand kicked off with the largest denim launch in history, bringing in $1M on day one, and has evolved to include ready-to-wear, swimwear, shoes and activewear. Grede shares what it was like to experience the rollercoaster of launch day, why the ability to understand what customers want is a superpower, and why she thinks in-person retail experiences will be here for decades to come.
