Sophie Lloyd

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.

She speaks English, Spanish and French and caters to all requests.

Sophie also works as a freelance stylist and is available to assist in fashion editorial and advertising photo shoots.



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.
