LOQ is derived from the surnames of designers Keren Longkumer and Valerie Quant. The two met while studying footwear design in LA.  You could say it was a perfect match as they both have a mutual affinity for unconventional forms, proportions, materials and attention to detail.  Quant is in LA while Keren works from Nagaland.  Together, the two fuse California's relaxed sensibility with textures of India.  Their intention is to redefine classics for the modern day woman.
