Born and raised in Bulacan, our Chief Inspiration Officer Ricca Del Rosario is an all-around business woman who is also the brain behind clothing brand HTP Clothing. She launched HTP in 2014 as a reselling platform for her used clothes, but it has now evolved into its own fashion brand, producing locally-made and budget-friendly pieces for the everyday Filipino.
Ricca has just started her family in 2014 when HTP Clothing was born. One night, when she was on her way home from a tiring day at work, she was devastated to discover that she had lost her Php 3,000 from her wallet, with no hope of getting it back. In an impulse, she decided to make up for what she lost. She grabbed her dusty suitcase full of her favorite clothes and sold them online for half their prices. From then on, HTP has begun soaring in the e-commerce industry. What started as a one-woman business has now expanded to a team of 100, with over 150,000 followers on Instagram and Facebook combined. What sets HTP apart from other brands is the story that Ricca shares with every piece of clothing.
In the six (6) years that she has spearheaded HTP, she has become an icon for local business, and has spoken in various entrepreneur and business conferences and events. She is also a Globe MyBusiness ambassador, and continues to inspire other Filipinos to venture into business. She is familiar with the ups and downs of online selling, and continues to adapt to the changing demands of the market, while also influencing everyday Filipinos to believe in themselves and continue to work hard on their business ventures.
Now, Looca was birthed with the aim of Ricca to help more people be financially empowered. Ricca started working on the idea of launching her own skincare brand in 2018, working on the perfect formulas for effortless and budget-friendly skincare. With Looca, she has worked to develop and perfect a low maintenance skincare routine with multitasking formulas that are good for various skin types. Also, her vision of making everyone glow in their own way is starting to pave its way to reality through her second brand. Ricca’s journey has set a clear road for the Glow Bosses and now, Loocarets are ready!
