Latricia is a wife, mother, and GiGi from rural Carolina, who has always had a passion for fashion. She has long been donned a Fashionista; receiving Best-Dressed superlative honors in both High School and College. Studying Business, and Fashion and Retail Management sparked, even more so, her love of clothing and desire for her own business.
Latricia believes in the power of “writing your vision and making it plain”. So, over 18 years ago, while caring for her incapacitated and paralyzed mother, she named her business, and established and perfected her Business Plan. Thence, was the conception of what is now, Elegant Occasions Unlimited, LLC, the World’s first and only mobile formal wear boutique that she began with her husband. Latricia sits at the helm as Chief Executive Officer of their now SWAM Certified enterprise. They recently expanded to laChri Fine Jewelers, where her husband is a GIA Certified Diamantaire and Chief Executive Manager; and laChri Fine Apparel, that offers custom wear onsite. Both have an online presence as well on their website. All entities are also housed in a Brick-and-Mortar storefront accepting clients By Appointment Only. She also personal styles a local celebrity and is available to other clients on demand.
