How Something Navy became a cautionary tale for influencer brands
Fashion influencer Arielle Charnas started Something Navy as a blog in 2009 and later evolved it into a private label with Nordstrom in 2018, before taking on investors to grow it into a standalone brand and burning through capital to open stores. After mounting debt and staff exits rocked the brand in 2023, Something Navy was being offloaded in a fire sale in December.
