74 Sarah Flint - Founder at Sarah Flint on Transitioning to DTC
In 2013, at just 25 years-old, Sarah Flint launched her eponymous brand, Sarah Flint. The company was born out of Sarah's frustration that women had to choose between feeling good in their shoes and looking great in them.
When she first launched the brand, her landmark luxury shoes could be found in boutiques and high end department stores around the world. However, as she grew, she saw an opportunity in the direct-to-consumer space and made the decision to adjust her distribution strategy.
Fast forward to today, the brand has developed a loyal following with some of the most stylish women in the world including Meghan Markle, Amal Clooney and Blake Lively. Her shoes are consistently seen on the pages of Vogue, People, InStyle and the New York Times.
Listen in to learn how Sarah Flint broke into the luxury shoe industry and made the transition from wholesale to direct-to-consumer. She also provides invaluable advice on how to build and develop a team.
