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.

The grand opening featured a DJ, a raffle, refreshments and cocktails for the many guests who showed up to support the newly minted entrepreneur.

“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 Monday.

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.”
