Francine lacrosse down with her to discuss her new venture.

We are living in a world where women want to buy it now, wear it now.

They don't want to see something in the stores and -- in the show and it show up in the store six months later.

Everyone is online.

That's the biggest opportunity for retail.

This is exactly the space you want to be.

You drop pieces month-to-month but it is not six months in advance.

You don't have to wait.

I have a monthly fashion concept to go in and it's in the right season.

The fashion business delivers coats in july.

The summer dresses in january and february.

Nobody is in that mindset.

How many shops will you actually have?

The business plan is obviously huge growth online but then also miami retail because that way you really control your own business.

Very prestigious to be in department stores, but you also really want to control your own business.

How big do you want your brand to become?

Quality and innovation are the most important things to a luxury brand.

Without it, it will die.

They are talking to their customers and getting feedback.

Under 35 only shopping
