âI have worked with the product from the market launch phase until our customer sees it in our stores and online,â Frank told The Post, with seven years of internal experience under his belt. âThe process begins with trend forecasting, where my team and I outline key stories and our vision for the coming season, and ultimately these trends influence what we buy and how we present our merchandise in our marketing channels. . I also work in partnership with merchants to identify the incredible brands that are part of our assortment and special products within pop-up stores, in addition to facilitating exclusive collaborations with designers that inspire our customers.

âWhen in doubt, I always rely on classic styles,â she added. âTrends are fun and something that I definitely fit into my style, but when I dress for major events or something I will come back to in pictures I want to feel timeless.â
