Check out the future of the booming Indian sportswear sector, discover tons of new fitness brands doing things differently, and see how forward-thinking dance studios are making a killing in media, apparel and even food and drink. Plus, learn about the daily routine of a modern, influential yoga entrepreneur, how to nail a collaboration in the sports sector, what it takes to launch a recycled surfboard brand, and why now’s the time to start a sauna company.
Also in the issue: meet upcycling designer Nicole McLaughlin, who’s making sustainable fashion fun – as well as holding big brands to account. Hear how the new generation of period-care companies are revamping an outdated sector. And, following a tough year for the food-and-drink industry, we look at the surprisingly rosy future of food halls.
