Who is Ro?
Rosario was born in Porto, Portugal. She was raised by the beach where she spent the best time of her youth. The beach is a part of her lifestyle.
Later she moved to London to study Fashion Management at the London College of Fashion and then worked as a buyer. Today she lives in Spain and is a mother of two beautiful children. Ro&Mo is the brand she always dreamed on creating: a mix of her beach lifestyle and her fashion background.
Favorite beach: Saline beach (St. Barth) or Praia Banana (Principe part of Sao Tome & Principe) not sure...
Can't go the beach without: my linen beach towel. I use it as both beach towel or as a pareo to go to the beach bar and drink a mojito. There is also my summer clutch that I can use on the beach for money & sunglasses or to go out at night.
There is nothing better than the feeling of the sand under your feet or swim the waves. How I miss the sea!!!
Who is Mo?
Monica was born in Luanda, during troubled times in Angola. When she was 3 months old her family moved to Alentejo, South of Portugal, where she was raised. Monica played in her childtimes in some of the best hidden gems and wild beaches in Europe.
University studies made her move to Lisbon where she started her career as a Marketeer. Soon after, she moved to Spain, first in Asturias and then in Madrid where she lived for almost 10 year. Today, she lives with her family in vibrant Hong Kong!
Her passion for the sun and the beach mixed with her fashion flair and trend-spotter spirit, always made her want to create her own fashion brand: Ro&Mo is all about that!
Favorite Beach: Ilha do Farol (Ria Formosa - Portugal)
Can´t go to the beach without: a great bag to put all my things for the day and night, like a big hand made pareo and jeans to dress up for a nigth out!
The feeling of happiness that you can have after a day at the beach, watching the sunset with sun dried swimsuit and salt in the hair, having tapas and drinks with your best friends, is one of the best sensations in life.
The Brand: Ro&Mo
We were raised by the beach and the sun. Summer holidays were spent playing in the sand and parties on the beach. Today, any free time, we spent travelling to discover new places, cultures, and sensations. As a result: we are both well travelled! But we share another passion: Fashion!
Life´s serendipity took us to meet in a city far from the sea, Madrid. Between tapas and cañas, the idea began and we created Ro&Mo, a resort brand of high quality accessories for passionate travellers. Today we live on opposite sides of the world but after millions of Skype calls, e-mails and whatsapps, trespassing different time zones, we are proud to launch: Ro&Mo
Different from other beach products brand, we believe passionate travellers such as ourselves will love the experience! Enjoy.
