About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”.

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
