After spending many years in the corner office, Fran now helps women build careers they love while staying true to themselves. She is a champion for women in business and has invested in over 30 female-founded start up companies. Fran's best selling books Embrace the Work, Love Your Career and The Myth of the Nice Girl are instrumental in helping me navigate my role as a founder." - Ariane
"I'm so excited to be collaborating with Ariane and goldno.8 on The Fran Tote.
I met Ariane in 2018 when she had just launched her first collection and I instantly fell in love with the concept of bags that can be customized based on one's personal style and moods. I also love how the bags are cool and high quality, without being pretentious. They're made for everyday life.
I wanted to create a tote that is the perfect size -- not too big so that it's hard to find what you're looking for, but not too small that it doesn't fit a laptop or book. I think we nailed it! And the neutral colors we selected make it easy to mix and match with most of the goldno.8 straps and accessories. Speaking of accessories, we created the "LOVE" snap inspired by the cover of my book Embrace the Work, Love Your Career. I hope you love The Fran Tote as much as I do!"
