Logistics of a Thope Fashion House

I would be happy with a story like that. This show is desperately in need of a rival fashion house.

I assume they have the $$ but they can also get investors. I don’t think Thomas has a head for business though so they may need to take Steffy along. Would be interesting if this story ends with Eric losing FC AGAIN.


I cannot see Steffy leaving her dad and grand-dad whom she loves and has no issues with at all, to go and work for her brother and a woman she thinks is an idiot. But who knows? LOL. Also, Steffy owns 37.5% of FC and I imagine she has a non-compete agreement with FC, as probably does Tom and Zende. Those are usually for 6 months to 2 years. If Thope opens their own fashion house, they better sell his new place and ask Brooke if they can live in the cabin rent-free. They are going to need every dime they can get, even if he sells his 5% of FC. Maybe they can hire Paris to come and do PR for them?

Though I do like the idea of Tom selling his 5% of FC, maybe Brooke would buy it and then she would have at least a small stake in the company she made very wealthy.

But, I don't see Thope branching out to do anything other than maybe have sex somewhere new, like the sauna at FC or the basement cutting room.

You're right Steffy probably wouldn't leave and to be honest that 5% isn't doing anything for Thomas. I don't think he is interested in running FC anyway, when Ridge mentioned it in past conversation Thomas said Steffy already had that covered. As for capital i assume these people are rolling in dough and can fund a fashion house if needed. Or Thomas can reach out to grandad Massimo to give him the dough. Didn't Massimo fund Ridge when he left FC many years ago? Thomas may not have a non-compete clause since he is family and ditto for Hope. If they did, they could also contest it or Ridge may decide not to enforce a non-compete.

Truthfully I don't see either leaving but it would be different and interesting.

I am down for steam room activities :lol
