The Brazilian-born designer was raised in Abidjan, Côte-d’Ivoire (West Africa). At a young age of 14, she found an interest in Fashion, designing dresses for her mother, aunts and cousins while preparing herself for the bigger picture. She moved to the United States in 2000 and graduated from the University of the Arts of Philadelphia. In order to pursue her fashion dream, she moved to New York to gain more experience in the fashion industry. Loza finally started her label as a contemporary line with a mixture of modern and trendy silhouettes with an ethnic and tribal edge.
