What advice do you have for friends who are considering building a business together? Are there any challenges or happy surprises that
you didn't anticipate?
Ferebee: "First, I think it’s important to really know the person you are going into business with, almost as well as you know yourself. Eleanor and I knew each other for eight years before coming up with our business plan. It’s important to have compatible personalities and full trust and respect for each other. It also helps, in regards to our type of business, that we happen to have the exact same style!
Eleanor: "One thing that has made our professional relationship so easy is that our life and lifestyle is very similar. This is by no means a requirement for a business relationship, but it has made negotiating our time a lot easier, since we both have similar schedules and demands. We also have a strong work ethic and have been able to divide and conquer really well. It's important, especially at the start when there is so much ground to cover, to know your strengths and weaknesses, and respect each others process. So far it's actually been really easy and just made us even better friends."
On Eleanor: Cacharel blouse, Willow blouse, Ay Not Dead x Opening Ceremony skirt, Balenciaga shoes.
On Ferebee: Isabel Marant top, Alexander Wang skirt, Celine shoes, Chanel watch.
