A hot new fashion designer is in our midst, shaking up the regional fashion scene and leaving his mark. Renzo Ladon, an Akron native, is the young mastermind behind LaDon. This clever brand, an acronym for Lions Always Dream Over Negativity, is all about fashion with a message. That message is deep-rooted in Renzo’s spirituality and is committed to spreading positive vibes to his growing base of fashionable fans.

In 2016, Renzo got inspired to design a logo for what would one day become LaDon. Not entirely sure of its purpose then, and lacking the means to take it to the next level, he continued to sketch, filling his book with dreams that would become realities in just a few short years.

In 2018, while training as a boxer, one of Renzo’s boxing mentors connected him with someone in the Kent State University's Fashion Design department. They recognized his talent and encouraged him to design a garment, showcasing it at a fashion show, and LaDon was born. 

Since that launching point, Renzo has been sharing his unique garments with the community and developing quite a following. His shirts, with their trademark fringe bottom and gold lion logo, can be customized and ordered on the Facebook pages: Ladonwave and “LÀDON”, on Instagram: @ladonwave, or via email at LaDon shirts and other apparel are now being featured at the popular Summit Mall store A-Fashions, in Fairlawn, Ohio as well. 

With confidence in his design and the spirit of an entrepreneur, Renzo has big plans for the LaDon label. In addition to his clothing, Renzo has also released a line of custom shoes called LaDons, which are made in Italy with materials of the highest quality. Currently, LaDon is preparing to unveil a line of accessories for both men and women in December of 2020. In the near future, there are plans to expand the label to include a womenswear line called Lady LaDon, as well as a line of athletic wear called LaDon Wave Athletics. There may even be a LaDon Wave Cub line for the little fashionistas somewhere down the road.

As with any creative mind, Renzo and his LaDon have encountered its share of critics who don’t understand his vision, but this bright and confident young designer is staying the course. Renzo knows with the talent he possesses, lionhearted faith, and the support of the people who matter most, the sky is truly the limit.

And lions always dream over negativity.
