AU Footwear Company FRANKIE4 Opens Store at The Bellevue Collection

Following the successful launch of a Bellevue Square pop-up location, Australian podiatrist-founded women’s footwear brand FRANKIE4 has opened its first permanent retail store at the Bellevue Collection. Frankie4’s 1,844 square foot retail space store is designed by JPC Architects.

The award-winning Australian footwear brand has gained a following for its shoes after the company was founded in 2010 by podiatrist Caroline McCulloch. Frankie4 has also recently launched key U.S. wholesale partnerships with Nordstrom and J. Jill.

As with all Frankie4 retail stores globally (there are currently nine locations in Australia), the Bellevue store will offer expert fittings to all customers to provide a customized experience. “Our footwear has helped hundreds of thousands of women, and we look forward to helping many more women in our flagship U.S. store,” said Frankie4’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Hilary McMillan.
