THIS IS US...
LIA COHEN is a woman owned independent designer collection of impeccably crafted, timeless heirlooms for the passionate woman.
To be treasured for generations.
THIS IS IMPORTANT TO US...
We believe in creating a dignified and empowered environment for our makers to invest their passion into the creation of modern treasures for women to reflect the best version of their authentic selves.
As part of our brand culture we are on a constant mission to achieve two very important things that lay at the heart of the LIA COHEN ethos:
- Provide opportunities in Guatemala through job creation specially for young aspiring women, and women who are breadwinners and primary leaders of their home.
- Make dreams come true through special initiatives like the LIA COHEN scholarship program.
The LIA COHEN Scholarship program
Our pilot work/study full scholarship program was launched with the first recipient enrolled in the Fashion Design School at Universidad del Istmo in January 2018. We intend to include additional students with the hopes of growing our local designer community.

Authenticity is the most admired quality in a woman. It's what makes us unique confident and determined. - Lia.
