About Shop Hop BA
Shop Hop BA founder
British-born Sophie Lloyd worked in Shanghai for five years as a fashion journalist, editor and costume stylist before moving to Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2010. She set up and established her company Shop Hop BA later that year to assist tourists and locals alike in their shopping quests, while providing a fun, stress-free shopping experience. Thanks to her insider knowledge and extensive contacts, Sophie provides a unique insight into Buenos Aires’ design scene. She extensively researches new boutiques, fashion designers, artists and hidden spots to find the most unique, up-to-date and top quality products and services in Buenos Aires.
Sophie also works as a freelance stylist and is available to assist in fashion editorial and advertising photo shoots.
Bailey lived in the beautiful, fashion-forward city of Charleston SC before falling in love with BA and moving here. Bailey is an artist/creative with a Bachelors degree in Studio Art/painting, and a career in styling, hair/makeup.
Bailey has always had a unique eye for style. Growing up thrifting, she has a talent for hunting exclusive pieces. She enjoys getting to know the clients so that she can connect them to the best clothing/accessories that not only suit their body, but also match their personality. She is certain that looking your best makes your feel your best, and is thrilled to help people along on their shopping journey to happiness.
Hailing from Buenos Aires, Mani studied fashion and textile design at the University of Buenos Aires followed by a masters in Fashion Marketing that opened the doors for her to work with various major Argentine and international brands, including D&G, Gucci, Versace, Hugo Boss and Bobbi Brown. She also spent time in London, completing a course in fashion marketing at the University of Arts, where she had the opportunity to travel extensively around Europe.
Her passion for culture and staying on top of the latest trends led her to join the Shop Hop BA team in 2017 as a personal shopper, which allows her to combine her extensive knowledge and love for fashion and design with her desire to help others discover Argentina's unique design scene in a fun and different way.
