Praised by the industry for its uniquely original prints, patterns and artful minimalism, Thieves Like Us is designed for the chic, contemporary woman. With easy-to-wear pieces like maxi dresses, denim friendly woven tops and jump suits—at an affordable price point--consumers can expect the simplistic yet sexy designs to stand the test of time just as well as the handiwork. Bucking the current fast-fashion, trend driven model, the Los Angeles-based collection offers timeless pieces that quickly become staples in every woman’s wardrobe.
LA-based designer Stefanie Betro brings her early training as a ballerina and painter to bear when creating her designs. With a detailed focus on the arts and a strong background in wash and print, Betro strategically fuses each element to create new looks and treatments that collectively offer a uniquely simple yet modern aesthetic.
With over a decade of experience in the fashion industry, Betro’s foray into apparel design began at an LA manufacturer, creating yoga and loungewear. She designed private label for Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters, before striking out on her own with Betro Simone and in 2017 launched her new line, Thieves Like Us, channeling her vision for a wearable, sexy and sophisticated collection of women’s wear into a reality.
Coming from a background in sales, DiGiulio managed
international business for several denim brands before becoming the Vice President of Global Sales overseeing several brands in multiple categories from denim and active wear to women’s contemporary. In 2014 Betro and DiGiulio met and worked together.
With DiGiulio's acute business skill and Betro’s design know-how, they partnered in 2017 to create their own brand Thieves Like Us.
