"I'm a big connection person" -- Elizabeth Faraut, LA LOOP founder
It was perhaps in the stars that Elizabeth Faraut would create a product with a distinctive, patented link. At its heart, LA LOOP is all about connection: keeping you connected to your glasses; connecting LOOPERS to one another and their communities; creating a family of long term business partners, collaborators, and suppliers.
Elizabeth started her fashion career in the 1990s with stints at Figaro Madame, Guerlain, and GUESS. These experiences, as well as her own natural style and vision, informed the luxury look and feel of LA LOOP, which Faraut launched in New York in 1999.
Devoted and dynamic, Elizabeth travels extensively to visit her LA LOOP suppliers - artisans around the world, to seek out new materials, and to ensure the quality of every single LA LOOP. Woven into the culture of LA LOOP is Elizabeth's inspiring everyday practice of treating others fairly and with kindness—and also of giving back.
Elizabeth takes a hands-on approach to philanthropy. She is the Henry Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute; chair of the board of directors of the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles; and executive committee member of Human Rights Watch. Through LA LOOP, she encourages LA LOOPERS to join the Virtuous Loop and celebrates and supports their own philanthropic initiatives and volunteer efforts.
