Introducing Bon Vivant - Interviews with Fashion Officianados

Le Thrift is always looking for clothing that provides the best deals for fashionistas on a budget. We thought we should also be inspired and learn from those who work in or around the fashion industry.
That is when we came up with the idea of interviewing these fashion experts and how they look fashionably chic, where they save money, how they have seen the economy change their business and many other fun tidbits of information they can share about their jobs.

Introducing Bon Vivant - Interviews with Fashion Industry Professionals. Our first interview is with Editor in Chief Melissa Maynard of Factio Magazine, Chicago's top Fashion Magazine.



We hope you enjoy the page and share it among your friends and family.
