Meet Lilit Madanyan, founder and CEO of the California-bred luxury brand, Ladaire. A few years ago, after life appeared to turn upside down for the company owner leaving her jobless and defeated, she took the reigns and decided to create the next industry-changing wardrobe for the modern woman.

Madanyan had earned her years’ worth of extensive experience in fashion as a fabric specialist for several high-end brands such as BCBG and Juicy Couture. Eventually, she ended up working for a smaller luxury brand that allowed her to expand her horizons and get her feet wet in product development. But after the company suffered grave losses and closed its doors, the now-CEO was left in the dark.

After a few words of encouragement from her husband, Madanyan decided she would try her hand at creating a fresh approach to the classy woman’s closet. She dedicated herself to doing what she never in a million years believed she would do; she created her own line. And in 2017, Ladaire opened its virtual doors. Early on, she decided that the brand would offer sophisticated styles designed with exceptional quality, but that her customers would not be paying an arm and a leg for them. “It was really important to me to keep the brand price conscious,” the founder said. “We wanted to offer women a way to one-up their wardrobes without completely emptying their bank accounts. And we really pride ourselves on providing high quality products while keeping affordable price tags.” Initially, the brand was notorious for their silk dresses, eveningwear, and powersuits. But as of late, the collections have been expanding into providing an entire essentials closet, including loungewear and intimates.

Needless to say, the company owner says the brand has been seeing “tremendous growth”. Customers have adored the pieces and their high-quality fabrics, but more importantly, they’ve stood by the brand while it has released new pieces unlike those from their typical collections. Thanks to their loyalty to the brand, the company was able to open its first Brick and Mortar location in The Americana at Brand shopping mall located in Glendale, California. The direct-to-consumer brand has slowly been expanding nationwide, while also designing entirely new and innovative pieces for the seasons to come.

But it wasn’t always the up-and-up for Ladaire. Madanyan tells us that creating and managing the brand has been a roller coaster since day one, but that she’s learned several essential lessons along the way that has led her to reach pivotal success. “When we had just started creating pieces for the collections a few years back, we were still doing our wear tests on fit models,” she explained. “The fit process is extensive– there’s a wear test, there’s the judging of the functionality of the garment, and there’s also making sure that the pieces fit on a body to the company’s standards. But for some reason, although the pieces looked great on the models, they weren’t fitting the customers as great as I would’ve liked them to. So, I started implementing self-fitting in order to expand our sizes to fit more proportionately to the average body. So far, it’s been the most effective change we’ve ever made.”

Since customer feedback has become crucial for Madanyan and the future of her brand, she likes to visit the store twice a week to get to know her customers and their desires. The more hands-on she’s become, the more she’s been able to provide her customer base with what they’re missing in their closet. So far, it’s been a successful business tactic.

And when she’s not busy running a fashion company, the CEO is usually taking care of her household and her three children. When we ask her how she keeps up with the chaos, she replies: “there’s no other way to get through than to keep going.”

So, what’s next for Ladaire? Well, according to the lady boss, a lot is currently in the works. For one, the CEO plans to invade Beverley Hills by opening another storefront. There is likely to be a few more free-standing Ladaire stores coming nationwide in the next few years. And, of course, more collections are coming. The CEO hinted at potentially expanding the brand into mens’ and children’s wear, but that won’t be for another few years. In the meantime, the lux line will be introducing two new categories: sweaters and shoes. We promised not to give too many details away, but rumor has it that the pieces will be created using the finest essentials imported straight from Italy. So, you definitely won’t want to miss out.

Things You Can Do To Make The World A Better Place

The world needs more heroes, not like spiderman or superman, rather the commoner, to make people happy and appreciate their lives. With all the challenging scenarios surrounding us, such as COVID, politics, depression, and system failure – we all need something or someone to cheer us up and make us feel that the world is not as bad after all. 

Even though it is becoming hard to stay optimistic about how the better days are coming, let’s hold on to our faith and stay hopeful as the days pass. 

Here are a few things we can do to make the world a better place for our loved ones. 

Be positive

Believe it or not, but favorable attitude always helps. Seeing our loved ones happy and positive makes us hopeful and cherish our lives. What happens when you wake up and see your partner smiling? Don’t you feel like holding them gently and filling their entire existence with as much love as possible? That’s what staying positive does; even on your tough days, it serves as the ray of hope. 

Distribute gifts

Gifts are the best way to express to your friends and family your love and gratitude for them. If your loved one is amused by books, choosing “A Little Uprising: The Muskrat Rebellion” by John C. Wolfe could be significant. The book belongs to the historical fiction genre and will leave a significant impact on the readers. 

A few other things that you can gift along with the book can be a beautiful plant, stationary, or maybe a beautiful handwritten note. 

Show gratitude

Showing gratitude to everyone around you and not just your loved ones will leave a massive impact on the world. This may seem trivial, but most of us rarely make it a habit of being grateful. The best part is that this habit will turn your life upside down and make it a beautiful one in just a few days. 

Try saying “I am so glad that you exist” to your partner and see how it makes them grin each time.

Be an empath

It is hard to be polite and try to understand others, especially when you have a lot going on in your life. Being an empath and setting yourself in others’ shoes is not easy. But it sure has its fruits. 

For starters:

  • You can try to be polite with everyone you meet,
  • Do not get frustrated if someone acts anxious in front of you,
  • Every time you get angry, tell yourself that they are human too and can make mistakes too.

Everyone in our surroundings is going through some challenges that they may not mention. Being polite or using good words can be of genuine help to them. 

Try to recover from addiction 

If you are an addict, then know that your addiction must be causing your loved ones a lot of pain. Even though the feeling of getting high helps you stay away from the brutal reality but it might also be costing your loved ones a lot. 

Embarrassment, fear, distress are a few things that your loved ones face daily. If you have thought about letting go of this habit before, then instead of doing it later, start it from today. Because tomorrow never comes. And you may get too late. 

However, know that the process can be tough, and you may feel like you’re getting stuck in the cycle again and again. But don’t give up, neither on yourself nor on your loved ones. Soon you’ll be sober and enjoying life again. 

These are some things that you can do to make your surroundings and world a better place. Know that small steps matter, and they can change your life for good.
