"The last year has been incredible," Barbier says. "We have the coolest clients ever and are thankful every day for what amazing new friends Maven has brought into our lives."
The couple originally opened the store as something they could do together believing men in Lafayette were ready for something new.
"We felt like men of Lafayette were ready to switch gears into a more big city, eclectic, GQ type of styling. Most importantly we wanted to offer that style at a very reasonable price point," she says.
In 2013, Barbier says there will be more of that affordable, yet GQ, look and they are launching a new cologne for men called "A Million Bucks."
"Because it really smells as amazing as a million bucks would smell," she says.
On Friday from 6 to 9 p.m., Maven will host a party to celebrate 365 days with A Funk Band Named Machete and drinks and eats (Acme Taco).
IND style will be on hand looking for some sharp dressed men. So, bring on that GQ vibe, please.
