Who Should Be Interested:
Do you love finding inspired, ethical, and unique fashion pieces? Are you an independent and emerging designer looking for a platform to showcase your products and develop a customer base? If this sounds like you, then ARO is the investment you’ve been looking for. ARO’s online and brick-and-mortar store in East Austin offers both customers and designers the chance to experience timeless and hip jewelry, clothing, shoes, and home goods.

The Company:
ARO doesn’t just believe in selling a product. ARO believes in the creative process, fostering designer growth, and providing customers with unique, fashion-forward fashion. They offer designers the space to showcase their pieces and connect with customers who desire that special look. ARO supports ethically made, sustainable products, and they hand pick their designers from around the country. They then meet with those designers to support their process and curate their designs, some of which are then exclusive to ARO. Customers can shop online or in their brick-and-mortar store in East Austin, and their customer base is global.

The Bottom Line:
ARO believes what they sell should be accessible in price, well-made, fashion-forward, and timeless. Plus, they offer a space for creatives to discover and support ethical and independent brands. Investing in ARO means investing in a company that allows emerging designers the chance to flourish. They truly believe in -- and support -- creativity. And that’s something this world could always use a little bit more of.
