Laure Heriard Dubreuil opened Miami’s 20,000-square-foot luxury emporium The Webster in 2009 out of a personal need.
Sensing the market was lacking a high-fashion retailer, she employed her knack for mixing classic men’s and women’s iconic names, such as Dior and Chanel, with emerging young designers. Housed in a former hotel, The Webster doesn’t look like a store, rather a “dream house.”
