I'm Ayanna --- A Jamaican born, South Florida reared, Los Angeles based, world traveler, Costume Designing fashion stylist (whew!)
I attended Florida A&M University where the students are notoriously fashionable and part of the reason I entered the fashion industry. 7 years ago I started a small fashion blog with 5 of my closest friends from FAMU where we discussed current fashion trends, DIY style, and "looks for less". It was during this time, I believe, I really got in to fashion. A strange twist of fate *took* me to Los Angeles where I landed an assistant position with a stylist and that's where the fun *began*....
I never looked back. Once working as an assistant, I quickly *became* a Key Stylist for *artists* like Usher, Jidenna and B.o.B; actors such as Issa Rae and Simone Missick of Marvel's Luke Cage; athletes including Devonte Freeman and Carmelo Anthony. I transitioned into film and television after realizing my love for story telling. In 2015, I designed my first network show for HBO's Insecure staring the talented Issa Rae.
Folklore and storytelling is a big part of my upbringing and I find bliss whenever I get to create a different experience for my viewer. I absolutely love what I do and thank you whole heartedly for stopping by my site.
