To learn how to grow her business, Beatrice spent three months last year at the renowned London art school, Central Saint Martins, where she took fashion and business courses. Since then, she has introduced a returns policy at Klarra and one-on-one shopping sessions with an inhouse stylist. The best bit? The services are complimentary, and you’re not obliged to buy.
