ABOUT

Susi Studio is a Los Angeles­-based lifestyle company that designs vegan footwear for the modern woman. Their focus is to inspire compassion towards humanity, animals, and the environment through creativity. They have made it their mission to make sustainable footwear both accessible and stylish. Bianca Moran is the founder and creative director of Susi Studio. She discovered veganism when she moved to Barcelona at 14 years old, and has since made it her life’s work to inspire others to make more conscious lifestyle decisions. In February 2015, Bianca opened SUSI Restaurant in the Philippines, the first gluten-free, vegan eatery in the country. Inspired by the gap in the fashion industry for versatile, cruelty­-free footwear, Bianca began sketching designs and Susi Studio was born. Bianca’s goal is to illustrate women should never compromise their femininity or personal style in order to uphold their values.
