8apart's founder Frankie Burik (she/her) has a background in luxury fashion, beauty and hospitality, but has always craved the entrepreneurial path. She loves traveling, spending time with her friends and family, and hanging with her Golden Retriever puppy, Bodhi!
What inspired 8apart?
8apart was born after watching my younger sister struggle to find clothing that was on-trend, well made, and stood for something important. Unlike one-size-fits-all alternatives, 8apart fosters self-confidence and expression through trendy yet inclusive clothing for young women with changing bodies, moods, and priorities.
How would you describe 8apart to a friend?
The name 8apart comes from the 8-year difference between me, Frankie, and my younger sister. We aim to be a beacon of empowerment for young women. We're here to stand with our girls: to uplift them, to celebrate them and to inspire them.
