Lazy Francis Designer Interview
Back in March, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lazy Francis’ Alina Sakhterova who founded this beautiful girls brand back in March 2013 with her college friend Olga Kruze. Alina shared with me Lazy Francis brand ethos: “We wanted to do something really special, unique and different. Something that kids can wear when they go out, and stand out from the crowd on the street or at a party. The designs in themselves are very elegant. Some critics may say they are for grown-ups, but we believe that’s what makes our designs so different from others.” Lazy Francis has their own boutique store in Riga where you’ll find the complete collection, including handmade items by local specialists.
