Arthur Blaj

Graduated in Business Administration from ESPM-SP, he began his career in the financial market with stints at brokerage firm Ágora and family office Jade between 2006 and 2011, the year in which he founded LIVO. In late 2018, he became chairman of LIVO's board and is now devoting himself to launching new d2c businesses in the retail sector. LIVO was born of a concern: why is it so difficult to find design and quality products at an affordable price? Without a response to the height, the brand was launched in 2012 with the premise that designer glasses need not cost the eyes of the face. With Brazilian design, the LIVO glasses are all handmade in premium acetate, a manufacturing process with more than 40 steps. All models are named after their own names, a young and shrewd footprint that is the brand's identity. Seeing a better world is also part of the LIVO universe. Since its inception, the brand has invested in its own social project, BOOK FOR LIVO, which supports initiatives related to education. Today, for every eyeglass sold, a public school student is enrolled for one month in the Eduq + program, a platform that brings parents and school together. The brand has already signed collections in collaboration with Gloria Coelho, Pantone, Corona, Vert and Manu Gavassi.

Lindsey Schuyler moved to New York to work at Eugenia Kim after graduating from Florida State University and is now known as being behind the major fashion watchdog, Diet Prada. Calling out copycat fashion looks on Instagram as a hobby has landed her a position on Fast Company’s list of 2019’s Most Creative People. Running the account now acts as her full-time job, alongside her work as a freelance fashion designer for various clients. Lindsey creates social media and web content while strategically partnering with select fashion brands and institutions for events and collaborations.

Toni Liu

Tony Liu graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago with a degree in fine arts. He moved to New York in 2007 to begin his career in fashion, later becoming the face behind a popular fashion parody account, Diet Prada. The idea for Diet Prada was born out of Liu’s experiences working at Eugenia Kim as a design and product development associate. While at this job, he subsequently launched a menswear collection called “You As” which is sold on its own online retail site as well as Mr. Porter and Opening Ceremony.

Through his education and exposure within the fashion industry, Liu became very familiar with the concepts of major designers, and was quick to notice others copying their original works. Along with his coworker at Eugenia Kim, Lindsey Schuler, they started to find fun in mocking these copied looks through @diet_prada, which he continues to manage.
