Aya! To get to work with her is to be a lucky son of a gun-she is a very well liked and talented stylist. Now that she is bicoastal I think someone in Hollywood should snap her up for her own creative show- fashion related and crafting, sort of like “Todd Time” from House of Style but with photo shoots and her styling with craft tips….I have already thought this out, you see. She is in high demand so I am a happy camper that she humored my nosey questions…
