Meet GLAUDI designer Johana Hernandez
GLAUDI was created in 2011 because Johana Hernandez wanted to give back to kids who suffer from poverty in poor villages in El Salvador where her parents where raised. Through GLAUDI and her past fundraising organization Latinos Con Corazon she was able to build a school with her team in the middle of the Jungle of San Ramon and also have provided computers and basic essentials to sorrounding schools and orphanages and also helped Mexico. GLAUDI name was inspired by Johana’s mothers name Gladis Hernandez as both of Johanas parents worked long hours in sweatshops all her childhood. Now she created a brand that doesn’t take advantage of immigrant sewers like they did with her parents and Johana continues giving back by making her collection all in USA to give work to others like her parents and treating them as family.
