  Company Story & History

Since its inception in 2010, AOPR has experienced remarkable growth, evolving from a humble 2-person shop to an award-winning boutique agency. This significant expansion is a testament to our team's dedication and the trust our clients have placed in us. AOPR is proud to be a certified (MWBE) enterprise in the city and state of New York, further solidifying our commitment to growth.  

2010

LAUNCHED

ONE DOOR CLOSED

From 1996 to 2007,  our esteemed CEO immersed herself in the fashion and entertainment industries, dedicating over a decade to her craft. In 2008, when the global financial crisis hit, Amore, like many others, faced a professional setback, being downsized from an executive position in the architectural & design industries. However, her resilience shone through as she spent the following years diligently building her client base. In 2010, with a modest investment of a few thousand dollars, AOPR was born.
