Charming Charlie was founded by Houston native Charlie Chanaratsopon in 2004 after he graduated from Columbia University’s business school in New York. Back then, Charming Charlie was just a single shop on Harwin Drive in Houston. Today, Chanaratsopon is the CEO of Charming Charlie, a chain of more than 250 fashion accessories stores all over the country. It’s an empire of more than 5,000 employees.

The growth of Charming Charlie was fostered by securing major real estate in prime locations around the country. Charming Charlie stores would also be flanked by retailers with higher profiles. In 2012, Chanaratsopon initiated an effort to revise its brand identity with a cool new campaign with the famous photographer Terry Richardson.

Through the years, the fashion accessories retailer has been awarded many times, and it continues to serve the needs and whims of women for fabulous fashion accessories at affordable prices.
