What inspired you to start Amo Luz?
After browsing Instagram for a while I noticed some of the things that people really loved and were obsessed about. I then thought to myself how can I make these things that people love into designs without just putting them on a shirt. Then the idea of shoes popped into my head. After doing some research, the best style of shoes that I found best to bring these designs to life were espadrilles. They are comfy, stylish, and fashionable.
How did you come up with the name for Amo Luz?
I told myself that if I ever started a company in the fashion industry that I wanted to incorporate my mother’s name in the business name somehow to show how much I appreciate her for everything she has done for my sister and I as a single mother. Amo means love in Spanish and Luz is my mother’s name, so the true meaning behind the name Amo (Love in Spanish) Luz (Mother’s name) is “Love You Mom.”
