All in The Family
Pretty much the only thing you can think about when you first meet Frances and Charlotte Gadbois, the creative mother-daughter geniuses behind Sloane Street. You’re not likely to meet a tighter duo, who work so seamlessly together. The yin and yang of every great characteristic that is needed to create a successful business partnership.
Like most female run businesses, Frances and Charlotte bring more than savvy and design technique to the table. They have brought along a certain sensitivity. After losing family members to the ravages of Alzheimer’s Disease, the Gadbois women found more than artful inspiration for their work. The creative calling from within became a fierce mission to give back. Sloane Street is the result of that calling, and the manifestation of two women who love art, and love their family. An action that shows that even though these two travel the world, charity begins at home.
Charlotte and Frances Gadbois, Co-Founders
The Sloane Street Collection 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, Frances and Charlotte’s fondest memories, from each of their childhoods, have been formed on this street in Central London. 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.
Though never anticipating building a business together, when the opportunity arose, both Frances and Charlotte, jumped in head first, and haven’t looked back since. They knew that their partnership was formed out of the silver lining of losing a family member and vowed to honor her in every way they could.
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 cherish, and passed on to the generations to come!
