About

LADDER is a curated clothing boutique in Cleveland, Ohio.

We support independent, sustainable designers and host community events with artists, musicians, chefs and creatives.

We'll be honest with you: we created LADDER because we wanted it.

Having lived all over the world, we missed the experience of a highly curated boutique where they remember your name, know your style and understand just the right way to get you out of your comfort zone.

We don't think about LADDER as "just another clothing store."

To us, LADDER is a place to find community.

Whether you're introduced to a small designer you've never heard of or clinking glasses at one of our events, we created LADDER because Clevelanders deserve something to be proud of. We deserve something special.

Thanks for being here with us.

She's never met a jumper or a stripe she didn't love. She's obsessed with what the world looks like and how we all see differently.
