Five years of Sézane in five words, by Morgane Sézalory

'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.
