How Gaëlle Drevet Built Fashion’s Favorite Brand: The Frankie Shop
There’s no denying that The Frankie Shop has become an editor-approved, It-girl brand over the years through its effortlessly cool yet sophisticated silhouettes with a minimalistic flair. Taking the fashion industry by storm, it’s truly no surprise that the woman behind the brand, French native turned New Yorker Gaëlle Drevet, innately possesses that same je ne sais quoi that The Frankie Shop radiates. She founded the brand with the intention of making women feel good through the art of dressing, and over the years, she has done just that.
Drevet has had her finger on the pulse of how thousands of women from all over the globe want to shop, stocking her inventory with classic yet elevated wardrobe staples and a finely curated selection of under-the-radar designers that embody both Parisian and New Yorker styles. Continuing to blend the two fashion capitals, The Frankie Shop now has brick-and-mortar stores in both Paris and New York. The Frankie Shop has amassed a loyal following of customers, including women and men, as she just added an assortment for men last year that contributed to a total of $40 million in sales in 2022 alone, with some of the best-selling items garnering extensive waiting lists. Drevet saw a massive gap in the market and the desire to dress with Parisian sophistication without breaking the bank and continues to be at the forefront of the contemporary market.
