Styles that make you want to take note, yet your eyes refuse to leave the runway long enough to find your pen.
When we give our time, finances and love, the impact on ourselves and others is immeasurable.
Hearts bigger than their handbags - Style beyond the perfect pocket square. Our supporters are the best part of Dimanche Chic.
Growing up in Haiti, Akmann Van-Mary, founder and CEO of Dimanche Chic, always knew his interest in fashion went beyond that of his peers. While everyone else was happy to leave wardrobe choices to their parents, Akmann was cultivating his personal style -- which, for him, meant his Sunday best every day of the week. Every meticulous fashion choice became about more than just clothing; they represented his individuality. He knew that he never wanted to just blend in.
Akmann is taking his immense love of fashion into new realms with the birth of his company Dimanche Chic. It seems like a natural progression for a boy who loved wearing his Sunday best to become a man who founds Dimanche Chic (a french phrase whose literal translation is “Sunday fashion”). But the company also reflects Akmann’s own philosophy discovered at a young age: fashion is about more than just clothing.
For Akmann, fashion is also about doing good. He was always conscious of the poverty that existed in Haiti and hoped to one day provide opportunities for those who didn’t have access to the same privileges he did. Watching his parents and those of his friends willingly give to whoever was in need instilled in him the desire to do the same. Dimanche Chic is his way of using his passion to make a significant impact of people’s lives.
Proceeds from the high-fashion events will be donated to a variety of different charities. Akmann believes that there are many causes worthy of funding in the U.S and in Haiti, so he plans to have a different cause benefit from each event.
For fashion lovers in Orlando, Dimanche Chic provides the only premiere high-fashion event in the area and a fantastic reason to wear their favorite outfit. Dimanche Chic is all about indulging in the fashion you love while giving back to the communities that need it.
It's not just about looking good it's also about doing good…
Akmann Van Mary
Founder - Dimanche Chic
We feel privileged to be able to work in an industry that we love; and the opportunity to “give back” to the world through our charities, truly fuels our endeavors. The founder, Akmann Van-Mary had a dream to blend amazing and creative fashion with worthy charitable causes. This heartfelt plan soon became Dimanche Chic.
The organizations we select are all built around the idea of serving others – whether globally or locally – and the response from our community has been beyond heartwarming. Whether the beneficiary is a cancer fighting organization, an animal shelter, or a Haitian children’s school in need – Dimanche Chic is proud to help.
We encourage local and international charitable projects to contact us and tell us more about their organizations. Throughout the year, our Social Media department regularly highlights special charities, and we welcome the chance to share this new information with our followers. Our hope is that we will positively inspire others in our community to have this same desire: To view another person’s “need” as an occasion to serve.
