tell us about the significance of ARO's name.
when I was thinking of a name for my business, i really wanted something that had a connection with my roots and where i'm from. ARO is my connection with venezuela and since I spent so much of my childhood there and those experiences influenced my style, it felt right.

what's your process in determining which brands and items to showcase in the shop?
buying for ARO is always going and evolving. we work mainly with emerging designers, our designers are heavily researched and curated thoughtfully. we showcase designs that we really connect with and pieces we know stand out from anything you may already own but also something you can wear as trends change. our goal is to differentiate our product offering and showcase the best in emerging designers.
what are you bringing to the sale? what's not-to-be-missed?
as a retailer, you go through seasonal cycles and it's even more so when you have a brick-and-mortar. so much of the jewelry is timeless, but we have to let it go for the next round of designers. we'll have some of my favorite jewelry styles from alynne lavigne, hey murphy, sophie monet, dream collective and lots of clothing from the winter collection.
