  • 'Never forget the child within you, always have fun'

    It’s kind of hard to believe Sézane is only five years old. Although the clothing site is now a cult go-to destination for anyone who wants to dress more Parisian, five years ago, founder Morgane Sézalory took a gamble by launching an online-only fashion shop (after her successful eBay store couldn’t keep up with demand). It was the first of its kind in France.

    Five years on, Sézane now has a physical store in Paris, one in New York, and hopefully there will also be one in London soon after the success of its Christmas pop-up (pretty please). Add to that some successful charity projects and you could say it’s been a fairly busy few years.

    So we were lucky to grab five minutes with Morgane, so she can tell us her story in five words.
