Securing a feature on The Coveteur has become a symbol of "you've made it" amongst the fashion set. Created in 2011, the site began as a fun side project-- where two childhood friends had the idea of diving into the closets of the most stylish street style stars and tastemakers. The idea blew up. Big time. The site is now a prospering digital hub for fashion, profiling huge celebrities, offering shop-able closets, and has officially claimed its spot as a household name. In short: the coveteurs have become the coveted.
We sat down with co-founder and marketing director, Stephanie Mark, to find out what makes the girl boss tick. Spoiler: when she says her favorite quote is, "Do whatever you want," we know she means it. (Get even more insight at Create & Cultivate Dallas when she speaks on our "Finding your Angle" panel!)
