I was in retail for about 10 years, working for all kinds of companies: Aritzia, Chanel, The Kooples. Pretty much anything you can think of, I’ve done it. But I knew I wanted to open my own store since I was 16.
I actually dropped out of college. I was going to FIT and LIM—both of the major fashion schools here—but it wasn’t for me. I thrive off of real world experience. I felt the best way to learn how to open a store was to just work in them. That was really my goal.
