How It All Got Started
During a late night conversation, while caring for Frances' mother as she was battling her long, gut-wrenching fight with Alzheimer's, Frances and Charlotte decided they would start a business together. Frances was considering retirement after just selling her jewelry business of 15 years, one that she had started after deciding she was finished with being an interior designer. But Charlotte, a sophomore in college studying broadcast sports journalism in Paris, had other aspirations. Charlotte wanted to start, grow and run a business with her mother.After Frances' mother passed a few weeks later, Charlotte and Frances put their business plan down on a napkin during a train ride to London. They decided this business would be in honor of their loving mother and grandmother.Sloane Street is named after the fabled street in London, which boarders the aristocratic neighborhoods of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea. Known for some of the world’s best shopping, Sloane Street was a street of many firsts in their family. It was home for Frances when she first moved from the county to the city, it was the first (of many) mother-daughter girls weekends, and most importantly was the first place Frances and Charlotte went after the passing of their beloved mother, and grandmother, and where the idea of this mother-daughter collaboration took form.Sloane Street is not just a street or a place to them, it is a memory that has been turned into a physical work of art, that can be cherished, and passed on to the generations to come!
