Margaret Coblentz Founder, Frances Austen

Focus on doing the 20% that will get you 80% of the way there.

Born in Chicago and educated at UCLA and Oxford, Frances Austen’s founder, Margaret Coblentz, has had a serious love for fashion from an early age. After a career in big box retail, Margaret decided to follow her dream and create Frances Austen. Born from the frustration of buying expensive and poorly made sweaters, Frances Austen makes the same quality of cashmere your grandmother owned by working with a heritage luxury factory and the finest Italian cashmere but made for the modern woman.
