A Little Insight to the Soul(s) of Thrift

Hey Thrifters and Bloggers!

This is Jenny Lezan, one of the co-owners of Thrift. I just wanted to introduce myself and Victoria and tell you a little about who we are and why we are doing what we are doing-- pursuing our dreams. Me and Victoria met a little over 2 years ago at the Art Insitute as transfer students. As we grew closer we both realized that we had many things in common. Most importantly, a dream in common, to start our own fashion line.

Both Victoria and I are incredibly driven and we each have own strengths that add to our partnership as a whole. In September of 2008, Thrift was born. Over the last 4 months we began to put our ideas down in writing and started taking action towards our goals. We have realized that our dreams are feasible as long as we are willing to go for them. Both of us came from lives that were a little more difficult than most and we have worked incredibly hard to overcome all the obstacles life has put before us. The way we look at it, NOTHING in life is impossible.

Vicky and I are the perfect combination of creative floetry and business know how. Thrift is the culmination of this creative ability and business know how and it is a unique home grown fashion line created with a whole lotta heart and a whole lotta soul. Victoria acts as owner of Thrift. As well as creative designer of garments, head managing stylist, and graphic designer of all marketing endeavors of Thrift. I act as Co-owner of Thrift. As well as creative designer of garments, Promotions and PR Director, and Business Liason of Thrift.
