At some point you may have found yourself asking some questions about us, that you may have not found the answers to just yet in your life. We're writing this one to help you out. Those questions you've been pondering might be "Who am I?" "What am I doing here?" "Where am I going?".... err, well, we can't actually answer those questions.. So I'll be answering another set of questions commonly asked by people who stumble on to Chantel Lauren Via the many avenues that is the internet.
"Who is Chantel Lauren?"
Chantel Lauren is the name sake brand of the Chantel Lauren. Simple not a Ralph Lauren Spinoff, even though we wouldn't mind being associated with the king himself. Myth says Chantel was handed Sewing machine before she left the hospital as new born, and at this point we cannot confirm or deny it. We, however do know that she's been sewing for a while now (20+ years or something), and has a killer eye for making sure you'll looking absolutely stunning on your wedding day. Chantel Lauren is run by Chantel and Tyler, a husband and wife duo. Both specialize in different aspects of the business and are able to bring the brand to reality from their individual life experiences.
