Our name is derived from two distinctive realms of thought, that which is precious and that which is powerful. “Au”, which is taken from the periodic symbol for gold and “ORA”, a derivative of aura, create the balanced state of being that is the House of Au+ORA; illuminating light and positivity throughout every crevice of the soul.
So how did this all begin? Let’s start from the beginning…
Two best friends from California with a passion for nature and fashion came up with an idea to embrace the elements of true beauty and express it through a kick-ass swimsuit line.
Miranda grew up a bit of a Californian gypsy, soaking up the sun, air, and energy from the mountains to the coast that pulses throughout Northern and Southern California. Basking in the warm sunshine and natural bodies of water is her ideal kind of day. Her desire for adventure is endless and her ultimate dream is to explore all of the love and beauty that Mother Earth has to offer.
Lindsay, on the other hand, grew up amidst the Southern California beach life and is a bit of a wild-child. She is the type of girl who dreams like Air, plays with Fire, but in the end is an Earth girl at heart. A mommy first, artist second, and adventuristic soul to the core, her goals in life are to travel, teach, and project as much happiness as she takes in.
Four elements reside in this world, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. We believe inside every woman these elements are colliding, blending, and some days even overpowering the others. We are all Mother Nature’s beings and we believe that reflecting our inner elements is what makes us beautiful. House of Au+ORA looks to create the harmonious balance of the dualistic forces we encounter every day. A place where we realize that Earth needs Water to thrive and Fire needs Air to be, and that through this collaboration, we thrive. Our soulful and playful bikini line manifests this balance through our styles and fit in such a way that you’d think these suits were produced by nature itself.
THE Au+ ORA Girl
The Au-Ora girl is many things, but to her center she is always positive, golden, and illuminating. Her feet are on the ground, head in the clouds, heart in the ocean, and soul-blazing in the House of Au-ORA. Peace, LOVE, and Sunshine.
