POPSUGAR Australia: When did you launch Frankie?
Rebecca Klodinsky: Frankie was launched in November 2013.
PS: What made you do it?
RK: The penny really dropped for me when my younger sister arrived home from a day of shopping, proudly showing me her new bikini which she had picked up off lay-by; I felt something had to change. She had lay-byed a bikini! If my sister was doing that, surely she wasn't alone. There had to be hundreds of other girls out there doing it too?! There was a hole in the market for great swimwear at happy prices.
PS: What did you do before starting your own label?
RK: Prior to Frankie, I went to university. I studied a double degree in Forensic Psychology and Psychology, although I deferred this course in my fourth year to pursue building the growth of my company.
