Chicago native NYC based CEO & founder, Joanna Stangreciak, always envisioned having her own fashion brand that caters to the modern, sophisticated woman of today. As a former Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) alumni, Joanna gained the knowledge and experience of all aspects of fashion including beauty, New York Fashion Week, styling, designing, etc. With extensive experience and training from major fashion companies in Los Angeles & New York City and working with buyers and clients from known brands such as Nine West, Free People, Henri Bendel and NARS, Joanna decided to finally turn her vision and passion into reality.
Joanna’s vision of Le Chic initially started as an international ecommerce company, but then expanded vastly into a successful wholesale company. However, she decided that 2015 was the year she was going to bring back her original passion for her ecommerce company by revamping Le Chic (www.lechicusa.com) and formulating it to personally connect more with her customers, both retail and wholesale. Joanna’s philosophy behind obtaining and maintaining success in the fashion industry entails personally catering to customers and providing them with the best possible customer service possible. Joanna believes this enables her customers to feel special and one-of-a-kind, which they truly are to her, no matter what.
While Joanna has been positively acknowledged for her self-made success through vast media channels, she also believes in giving back to communities and providing some kind of charitable contribution in order to make a difference and support others in need. Therefore, Le Chic is proud to have made numerous contributions/participations to charitable organizations and fashion events supporting causes relating to children, health, and animals as well as continues to feel very passionate in remaining involved.
As Joanna Stangreciak’s passion and influential fashion sense continues to reflect in the evolution and relaunch of Le Chic (www.lechicusa.com), there are other exciting future ventures planned such as a swimwear line and having her own charity organization one day. In the meantime, let the your strong, independent, mature, sophisticated fashionista self allow to experience what Joanna has created for you at Le Chic!
