Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie announced the launch of Atelier Jolie, a new fashion-focused business venture on Wednesday. Atelier Jolie will be a fashion brand that sees consumers step into the role of designer, allowing them to partner with a global network of tailors, pattern makers, and artisans to produce garments.

The business’s purpose is to democratise the fashion industry by allowing consumers access to emerging designers and artisans, the company’s mission statement read.

“I am building a place for creative people to collaborate with a skilled and diverse family of expert tailors and artisans from around the world,” Jolie said in a statement.

Additionally, the fashion house has a social justice bent. Jolie hopes to place refugees in apprenticeship positions as well as bolster support for “underappreciated groups.”

The house also promises to inject sustainable initiatives into their business model by relying on vintage and deadstock materials for designs.

“You will be able to repair or upcycle a piece from your closet you wish to revive,” Jolie said in a statement. “Breathing new life into what could have been thrown away.”

Further details are yet to be revealed, including launch date, personnel and where the house is based.

“It’s all new, and I’m more of an artist than a businesswoman,” Jolie added.

Analysis and advice from the front lines of the retail transformation.

While GU, with slightly lower prices than Uniqlo and clothes aimed at younger clientele, has a solid presence in Japan, it’s less known in other major markets. Building its presence abroad is part of Fast Retailing founder Tadashi Yanai’s push to “become a true global player,” by first doubling annual profit to ¥5 trillion within a few years.



The best stores don’t just serve as billboards or customer touchpoints —they’re a stable and lucrative revenue stream. As younger consumers have embraced in-store shopping despite their digital native instincts, the value of stores is undeniable. Running an effective store requires choosing the right location, understanding its sales potential and making sure it serves its local clientele.
