Who we are and where we've been
HYDRA (Hydra Leather and More) opened its doors in Downtown Tucson on November 4, 1994. The public quickly took notice as there was no other boutique like it in Arizona, still isn’t. Here was an eclectic, fashion forward boutique for both men and women that almost seemed out of place in Tucson. New York or Los Angeles yes, but Tucson? You’re darn right! Well we got going and never looked back…
HYDRA has morphed, grown and changed with the times, continuing to set fashion trends throughout Arizona. We pride ourselves on great old fashioned customer service and we are proud of the diverse collection of Clothing, Lingerie, Shoes and Accessories we carry for men and women.
After 12 years in Italy, Joe Susco decided it was time to sell his store Hydra II in Rome and move home to Tucson. Joe is now big sister Margo's partner and part owner of HYDRA, bringing his talents, amazing customer service skills, creativity and likable nature. He has given HYDRA a new look and vibe!
After graduating from the University of Arizona in the 1980's and moving to Spain, Margo Susco took the long route home via Seattle and Los Angeles. She opened HYDRA in November of 1994 and is affectionately known as "The Queen of Congress."
