Founder, Suzan Selçuk, launched the brand on ASOS Marketplace in 2012 and draws on her Fashion Styling degree and influences from 90s culture and urban street style. She says,
“I love taking trends directly from the street and putting a commercial twist on them. One of my idols growing up was Kimora Lee Simmons, founder of BabyPhat, so even at school I was always designing and creating my own urban clothing lines. I am hugely influenced by people such as TLC, FKA Twigs and the whole ‘girl power’ movement of the Spice Girls too. Eventually I want to add clothes to our product range but want La Moda to be the leaders of the fast fashion accessories market first.”
