Nika and Lea are two strangers-turned-friends who met at a cocktail party, bonding over their shared advocacy in fighting against human trafficking. Nika had recently left corporate fashion in New York City to develop her own personal speaking, consulting, and styling brand. Lea transitioned from her fashion career in public relations into non-profit event fundraising in collaboration with a variety of causes. Over time, the friendship grew over double dates with their husbands, swapping style tips, but most of all, their passion for empowering women.
A year later and Láro is their answered prayer in combining their love for fashion with their deep desire to impact positive change on a global scale. Through their brand, the powerhouse duo seek to step in the gap for underprivileged and marginalized communities without a voice; specifically in supporting indigenous artisans of developing countries and championing for the cause against human trafficking.
Our mission is promote a lifestyle brand that empowers women while advocating for underprivileged and marginalized communities around the world, specifically through supporting indigenous artisans and joining the fight against human trafficking.
We believe that empowerment is a lifestyle available to all women. We design each of piece to be unique and special, unlike any other... just like you! Our collection is lovingly handcrafted by local artisans and drenched in the rich heritage and legacy of The Philippines. Láro integrates traditional signature techniques of weaving, embroidery, and beadwork from various indigenous groups. We seek to honor and celebrate the sacred stories of these communities by offering our signature blend of polished and artisanal to the world.
When you shop Láro, you impact positive change. Not only do you help us sustain a quality livelihood for our artisans, but you also help us combat modern slavery as 10% of all sales are donated to support anti-trafficking efforts on a local and global scale.
