Laia

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, an only child obsessed with fashion and music from an early age. Wanting to fully experience all the happenings I had been reading in magazines I set my sights on New York City upon graduation. Instead I ended up going to school in Philadephia and for 5 years had an awesome time making rad friends, seeing all the cool bands I never could growing up and enjoying Pennsylvania’s finest Wawa iced tea. After finishing my degree in graphic design I moved to Brooklyn, got a cat and worked a bunch of retail jobs while trying to get my foot in the fashion door. Now I work as a stylist assistant and when I’m not trying to wrangle clothes from showrooms, I’m home pissing around on the internet.
