Family oriented, fashionable, and stylish are words that describe the owners of FaSHOEnista, Monica and Murielle, who are also sisters. The name FaSHOEnista, a savvy high-life shoe boutique in Atlanta came about during a brainstorming event with the two sisters sitting in front of the computer.
Born and raised in the “Peach State” of Georgia, the two owners also have another sister, who decided to watch on the sidelines and cheer them on as their biggest fan. Since Monica wears a 5 ½ sized shoe, she found it very difficult to find stylish shoes in her size, “So why not open up my own boutique?” is what came to this style-conscious entrepreneur-ess mind and that’s when the dream was fulfilled.
As for Murielle, she always wanted to work in the fashion industry, “But I couldn’t draw, so I felt like that would hold me back,” shares Murielle. But that didn’t stop these two determined women. And now, FaSHOEnista has been opened since February of this year and is going strong!
Debuting at FashionGLAM , Atlanta’s second edition of boutique owners, retailers and lovers of fashion celebrating in style at this “Fashion Meets Philanthropy” trunk show, taking place on September 18th at the illustrious Millennium Gate Museum in Atlantic Station, the ladies are extremely excited!“Events like FashionGlam are what we love because we don’t have a physical store, ” shares Monica. However, that doesn’t stop their business, because as they say, “We are a mobile shoe boutique!” From home events to online shopping and trunk shows such as FashionGlam, the dream for the ladies is now their reality..
With Murielle being a happily married woman with two children and Monica standing beside her, the FaSHOEnista brand continues and I especially look forward to seeing the ladies at FashionGlam on Saturday, September 18th, 2010.
