AYR was founded in NYC by fashion friends committed to creating confidence through clothing. It’s not about a label or a logo. It’s about the woman who wears it.

Q: Whats your favorite ‘90s song?
A: I’m a huge Brit pop fan, so I have a couple: Pulp by Common People and The Verve Bittersweet Symphony
Q: Who are your fashion icons?
A: I got into fashion because I loved Alexander McQueen’s “Voss” Collection, that was something that really inspired me. Twilda Swinton because she really dresses for herself. I also love Patti Smith back in the day and Basquiat’s girlfriends!
Q: What’s your life motto?
A: See something, say something. The MTA got it right with that one. Life is too short to wait. If you see something, say something because that’s the only way you can make it happen!
Q: What is something you never leave the house without?
A: I always bring my camera. I have a Reko and it’s so great because it fits in my purse. We take all of our brand pictures on it. Our Instagram is mostly photos of our friends, family and team and its all captured on my camera!
