My name is Shalon Bowens, I am the CEO of Lala Fashions and have been in business for 6 years. Lala Fashions is an upscale boutique and sale high end fashion in a comfortable private studio environment. In addition, Lala Fashions is a clothing store without the marked up prices and provide a personal experience. We create the opportunity for disadvantage women to succeed, build confidence and high self esteem. As for my educational background, I am a certified peer coach, a facilitator, block captain, early childhood professional, child development associate, financial education and sociology resource director. As a counselor I saw the need for interview clothing for women who had recently gotten out of prison and had suitable clothing for the job interview to help them get themselves to the next level. I wanted to help them achieve, and get a job and keep a job. In my position, I was able to help women get jobs but they didn't have clothing to wear to the job. So I wanted to help them overcome this barrier. Lala Fashions purchased high end clothing from wholesalers and resell them to woman at very affordable prices.
