The tradition and legacy of Marion Pistole and Luan Fogg continues. After 64 years of “dressing little girls as little girls’” Tres Elegant, as inspired by Luan’s, opened its door to cater to the multiple generations of Luan’s customers and attracting new ones.
Luan’s Girls Dresses previously located in Long Beach, CA was started by Marion, Luan’s mother, in the early 1950’s. She couldn’t find nice clothes for her daughter so she decided to build the shop, name it after her daughter and the rest is history. After taking over the reign from her mother in the 80’s, Luan was ready to retire and handover the reigns to the next generation.
BUT THE LEGACY CONTINUES….
Tres Elegant is a family owned business. Enjoying dressing up our little girl for the different occasions from Luan's, the idea of a children’s boutique came into fruition after spending more than 14 years working for a retailer. My husband Andy and I collaborated with family and friends to make this venture a reality. Having 20 years of end to end supply chain experience has helped me in the planning and execution of this new store.
With a physical location in Artesia, California, the store specializes in special occasion dresses for young girls from newborn to size 16. Tres Elegant a French word meaning “very chic” captures the essence of the dresses and accessories carried by our store. Our goal is to create a reputation for unique, carefully curated, quality fashion outfits, bringing the best value and price for our customers and provide excellent customer service. We also want to continue that legacy of dressing girls as little girls. Capturing their innocence with the timeless, classic and elegant look.
We give back.. 10% of our profit generated from special sales and trunk shows goes back to the community.
As we started our own journey in continuing this legacy, we also brought part of the team that had assisted Luan in her store. When we opened our doors, customers were greeted by a familiar face of Marla as well as Virgie who were both ready to assist you once again. And from time to time, Luan graces our new store. So come by, visit and shop.
