Cece L'amour

Did you guys hear?? I finally have the name of my shoe line :)

Why Cece L'amour? Well, to be honest, it wasn't my first choice. My original name was actually Vie in Rose, which translates to "Life in Pink", but our lawyer found a lingerie company in Canada with the name La Vie in Rose and he thought it was too close, SO... it was on to finding a new name.

My friends call me Cece, or Cece the Bunny so I thought- Ooh! Cece Lapin (Cece Bunny in French) but that's way too close to Fifi Lapin. Another name fail. I was pretty set on incorporating French into the name since it's my dad's native tongue and it was my first language. (Betcha didnt know that!) I needed something personal, but with character. I liked the Cece part but thought Cece Ouaknine was too difficult and Cece Soto was too boring...
Then I thought, L'amour! My last name isn't L'amour but I do love love. ;) Cece L'amour would be my new name! And you know, I actually like it more than my first choice.

Next came the look. I wanted my logo to be super girly and fun, and luckily, I'm married to the most talented logo designer I know. hehe. He came up with this...






And here it is in a prototype shoe...

You like? I love! Next up? We've got to design a super cute box to hold these babies!

I'm super excited to get started on the shoes and to share my ideas and designs with you :) I can't wait to hear your feedback. Thank you all for your loving support, it really means the world to me.


xoxo,

La Vie en Rose is big here in Canada. Good thing you didn't pick a name that was similar because it's be hard to get recognized as an indivudual entity and not a big company!

Ok I am late to comment but I just want to let you know How I LOVE your logo. I am Canadian French and I love how the little wing on the R make it sound RRRRRRRRRR, l'amourrrrrrrr is much more powerfull then a simple "amour"! Cannot wait to see the shoes and to have them available in Canada!

Imani Ayat said...

Can't wait to see your designs and pick up a pair when they are out in stores. Definitely cannot wait.

Hi :) i love reading your blog! i'm from vancouver, canada and i'm going to school in philly right now. i love the name vie en rose but it definitely sounds like la vie en rose (for those of us who shop there) and i think it would get confusing! probably for the best <3 cece l'amour sounds just as beautiful and i can't wait to buy some of your shoes!
