Meet Wilda Turenne, Owner of CHIC STYLES. A sophisticated boutique for woman from size Xs to 3xL located in North Miami, Fl. Wilda was born in Cap Haitien, Haiti and Immigrated to the U.S at the age of 15. Wilda said she once read something that says “Fashion is what you buy and Styles is what you do with it” From that moment, fashion became to me something different for each individual.
She visualizes fashion being different for everyone. She came to an understanding that you do not have to look flashy to be elegant. Becoming a boutique owner is a journey. Wilda’s desire was to built, create, and learn, and surpasses my fear. Every challenge she is faced with now, becomes a greater experience of learning my true power.
A year after she moved to the states , she attended John Casa Blanca modeling school. She started looking for modeling opportunities, but no modeling agency would represent her because of her short stature. She remembered thinking of many ways that she can be a part of the fashion industry without being a model.
The idea of owning her own shop was a blur but she wanted to be my own boss to express my vision of fashion. She wanted to change how she was living and to be a role model to her daughter ; that was her driving force. So that her would not have to go through the same things she did.
She did odd jobs , sometimes working two jobs to save every penny that she earned. Through this journey, Wilda is Thankful and grateful to so many family members and close friends for all their support and admiration.
It is a long journey,she said. She realized that she’s only taken a small step to reaching my goals. Chic Styles has shown me that with hard work and determination that all things are possible.
Wilda is pleased to say that the store is located in downtown North Miami Florida and we are currently working on the website; so, every woman from around the globe will have a opportunity to visit and shop at Chic Styles.
This is just the beginning!!!
MAKE SURE YOU ALL GO OUT AND SHOW HER SUPPORT THIS SUNDAY AT HER BOUTIQUE GRAND OPENING TO THE PUBLIC
