Cara Delevingne joins Lora DiCarlo
“I found out about Lora DiCarlo back in 2019, before the brand officially launched, and right from the start I really aligned with the brand’s vision and message, and how they were destigmatizing sexuality and bringing it into the mainstream for everyone,” Delevingne told W, with an emphasis on the fact that “it’s not just for females” to have access to these conversations and products. “Lora DiCarlo is filling the gap in the market, creating products that are gender-inclusive. It’s so important to promote sexual wellness and sexual empowerment for everyone,” she said.
