I am Ayanna Maria Burke. Growing up in Mississippi, I spent time watching my grandmother sew her clothes, my aunt mix and match the latest trends, my dad crunch numbers, and my mom administrate. From an early age, I was obsessed with fashion. I slowly began to design clothing for myself, create fashion sketches, and imagine having an online clothing store to sell my new creations.
Realizing my calling was fashion, I enrolled at the University of Southern Mississippi where I received my B.S.B.A in Fashion Merchandising. While in school and after graduation, I continued a career as a Visual Merchandise Manager, and in the background grew my network as a freelance stylist. Since moving to Atlanta, I have become a full-time stylist at the Ivy Showroom.
Finally, I am launching my online clothing boutique! This has been a dream I've fought for. Thank each of you for your support! You are supporting my dreams, not just my brand!
