Le’ Peach Grand Opening Makes an Instant Impact
If the grand opening is
any indication, Le’ Peach Couture, and its proprietor,
LaVivian Langston, are in for a very successful run. On
Sunday, July 23, the new apparel store – featuring custom
denim designs –overflowed with family, friends, supporters
and customers as Langston – “Peaches” to her friends –
introduced to Toledo its newest fashion mecca.
Dorine Mosley, LaVivian Langston,
The grand opening featured
a DJ, a raffle, refreshments and cocktails for the many
guests who showed up to support the newly minted
“This is my dream,” said
Peaches of a dream that has no longer been deferred. A
self-admitted fashionista for as long as she can remember,
Langston, a Chrysler employee, has opened a clothing shop
devoted to “fun wear,” she noted.
Le Peach Couture
(419-936-4047), located in the mini-plaza at 2909 W.
Central, will be open for business from 10 am to 7 pm,
Tuesdays through Saturdays, and by appointment on Sunday and
Langston custom designs
denim by taking a pair of jeans, for example, and “ripping,
cutting, sewing them up.” In addition, she reaches out to
California wholesalers to complete her stock.
Langston attributes her
success in fulfilling her lifetime dream to the support she
has received from family and close friends. In addition to
numerous family members, she singles out friends such as
Tina Allen, Tina Butts, Tina Friesen, Kenyetta Jones and
Regina Hudson, among others.
Langston’s dream of
opening her own shop would not have been complete had she
done so in any other place than Toledo. “Toledo is home,”
she said. “I love my people here.”
