Who we are? Sandie Osbourn has worked at Harrods, Selfridges and more recently was the Buying Director at Gray and Osbourn. In these roles she has demonstrated a keen and brilliant eye, curating a varied and interesting collection for the fashion focused woman. In 2004, Jacqui Green founded Chesca, a collection including classic essentials and specialising in luxury occasionwear. Their collaboration has given birth to Franchesca.
Why? Chesca had been previously available in a famous and prestigious catalogue. Together Jacqui and Sandie have pooled their expertise to develop an unapologetically precise collection of luxury brands. All items are individually selected on merit, for quality and suitability and carefully intertwined to create a balanced range which blends different brands together, to create perfect outfits for that special occasion, or simply an evening with friends.
When? Now! We have a wonderful assemblage of brands now in stock. We have taken delivery of a whole host of our favourite international brands, including Basler, Gina Bacconi, Ribkoff, Betty Barclay, Frank Walder and Gerry Weber. We are especially excited by Gardeur, Michele and NYDJ Jeans, trousers and jeans with “magic” qualities that smooth and flatter and instantly become the staple of any wardrobe.
Where? Franchesca brings all of these brands together online, by mail order and in Chesca standalone stores across the country. This means having all the collections you love together, and affords the unique opportunity of blending different brands together to form a unique style with ease. Mix a Basler aqua wool coat, with a silver-grey Domina Jumper and a pair of Gerry Weber “Romy” jeans and you have a winning combination.
