FRANC was launched in 2015 to immediate success. The publication was founded by model and Trinity College Dublin history student Briony Somers who sought to honour the intricacies of the fashion industry in which she worked with academic and debating perspectives cultivated during her education. FRANC has established an innovative mode of engagement with an industry often dismissed as superficial, winning the warm embrace of industry insiders and a cultured and engaged readership that reaches beyond the traditional fashion audience. 

Following Briony's graduation the magazine continues to grow as autumn 2017 sees the international launch of the magazine's fourth issue alongside an expanded product offering and newly launched online store, exercising its creativity both visually, intellectually and entrepreneurially.
