The Women are Fundamental capsule collection takes a fun stance on our engagement to women. Each piece in the capsule has been co-created with a different member of the ba&sh crew. The profits from the sale of these pieces will be entirely donated to the Women Safe & Children association.
The ba&sh crew
CEO of the Think Tank: The Galion Project
After an experience within the company Orange, Agathe co-founded the collective of tech entrepreneurs: The Galion Project.
The concept? To bring together the founders of start-ups so that they can share, help each other and pass on to the next generation.
Its ambition: to make France and Europe the most attractive ecosystem in the world for entrepreneurs.
Today, the Think Tank has more than 450 entrepreneurs, it organises numerous events each year and regularly publishes operational tools to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
In March 2022, Galion took a new structural step by launching its seed investment fund, Galion.exe, to finance a dozen young companies each year.
Founder of Le Tigre Yoga
Founder of the Tigre Yoga Club and passionate author, Elodie has dedicated the last ten years to sharing the art of living yoga with many communities: in the Tigre, festivals, retreats, but also for NGOs or associations. Despite the setbacks of the closures linked to the Covid pandemic, the energy of Le Tigre lives on through Yogaplay.fr, a complete digital service that has become THE reference platform for on-demand video courses in yoga and other practices. The catalogue is enriched by the podcast "Les Conversations du Tigre" that Elodie hosts every week with passion.
Co-founder of Kazidomi
Emna Everard is the co-founder and CEO of Kazidomi, an e-commerce company for healthy and sustainable products that delivers all over Europe. After training as a management engineer, she went straight into entrepreneurship in 2016. She was honoured as "Entrepreneur of the Year" in 2019 and now has a team of 70 people. In 2022, she bought the French e-commerce company Bébé au Naturel.
Co-founder of Wild & the Moon
Between New York, where she was born, Dubai and Paris, Emma Sawko is a savvy (and converted) businesswoman. A former advertising executive and mother of three, she launched the design concept store Comptoir 102 in the United Arab Emirates in 2012. It was an immediate success. In 2015, she created, this time with her ex-husband, Hervé Sawko and in the heart of Paris, the Wild & The Moon brand, a healthy café. The concept: only natural, vegan, organic, gluten-free, additive-free ingredients, from local agriculture, seasonal whenever possible, and fair trade. And above all, no plastic, with an organisation designed to be as virtuous as possible, using waste and avoiding food waste. Wild & The Moon is becoming increasingly popular and continues to expand with a dozen restaurants across the Parisian capital, but is also present in Amsterdam, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and soon Doha.
For our Women are Fundamental capsule, Emma has created a refreshing water with coconut water and spirulina, available in all Wild & The Moon cafés in Paris from the 8th to the 19th of March 2023.
Founder of Bliss Stories
Clémentine Galey, the founder of Bliss, launched the Bliss Stories podcast, which has accumulated over 40 million listens since 2018. Bliss then expanded into Bliss-Bump, and the Bliss Vanity, an audio programme and products dedicated to accompanying and supporting women in their maternity journey.
Today, Clémentine continues to expand her field of expertise by taking to the stage with a show inspired by her podcast, in front of sold-out venues (Trianon, Olympia, Grand Rex & tour in France, Belgium...) to share the stories and struggles of thousands of women.
Amandine Albisson was born in Marseille and started dancing in her mother's dance school. Amandine joined the Paris Opera dance school at the age of 10 and attended all her classes before becoming a pro at the age of 17 by joining the Paris Opera corps de ballet. On the 5th of March 2014 she became a prima ballerina. She has performed the title roles in all the great classical ballets such as Swan Lake or La Bayadère as well as in more contemporary pieces such as the mythical Bolero. Amandine also performs on international stages including Japan.
Founder of Season
Cathy Closier opened her first café near the Sorbonne Universtity at the age of 26. In 2004, she set up Café Crème in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris. Thanks to the success of the restaurant in its first few months, Cathy decided to set up her HQ in the flourishing Haut Marais district, and to open several shops. To begin with, she bought the restaurant Chez Guillaume, which she transformed into Café Rouge. It was a great success. She then decided, after several years, to sell it to turn to a new project, the Café de la Poste, rue de Turenne, while letting a large-scale project mature in a corner of her mind, which would later become Season. Season was born in July 2015. Due to its success, this allowed her to expand her business. Numerous collaborations followed and the opening of a restaurant in NYC and two new establishments planned soon for Paris.
