If you're a fabulous reader of this lil' outlet titled Tres Chic Style then you're aware of the evolution of this dynamic brand. If you're not...This editorial is for you!
I'm a lover of all things fabulous. Always primping in the mirror as a child, sharing style advice with my fellow classmates and always inspired by fashion savvy women in my life... Thanks Mommy!
My childhood days were mired with Sunday's at church watching the "Hat Lady's" in all their glory, episodes of All My Children and and flipping through the pages of Ebony magazine in search of the monthly Fashion Fair editorials.
Fast forward and having found myself in corporate America stuck on a trading floor at a Wall Street firm I always wanted more. I needed to sit front row at NYFW and dish on the latest beauty finds. I sashayed my 3 inch stilettos on out the door and Tres Chic Style was born!
The Name... Tres Chic means "Very Stylish" in French. After my first visit to Paris, I emerged back to the states realizing that term was so befitting of all things Kishana.
Tres Chic Boutique:
In the Fall of 2007 Tres Chic Boutique set it's sights on my hometown of Brooklyn. Tres Chic Boutique was inspired out of my love for fashion and favorite childhood soap opera, All My Children.
The beloved character Myrtle Fargate owned a boutique called the "Glamorama" . I would rearrange the furniture in my Barbie Dream House and even made a "Glamorama" sign that I affixed to the door...Yes, I was serious! So naturally when I was afforded the opportunity to live my dreams, it was going to be all things Fabulous!
Tres Chic Style:
With the success of the boutique, I envisioned a place where I could share my daily take on fashion beyond the walls of my business. Tres Chic Style was born. My first editorial was published on October 8, 2007. I was quickly a "Blogging Fool"! I developed over 150 post in just one month and realized my passion was born and realized. Tres Chic Style Blog was the blue print for my foray into the fashion and beauty industry.
