The Global Fashion Management (GFM) trio Vanessa Urenda, Nancy Zauscher, and Paula Manrique collaborated in their program as part of their capstone project to soon start an innovative business.
These students, who were working fashion professionals in the U.S. or Latin America, used their cultural roots and business experience to create Lamini, a line of cozy, buttery-soft alpaca accessories that sells in Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and their own e-commerce site.
For Lamini’s founders, the rewards come not only from confidence in their business savvy but in bringing customers original fashion with a low environmental footprint.
Their brand story focuses on the uniqueness of alpaca fiber and the intersection between design, sustainability, and responsible consumption.
