I have always had passion for design.  As a young girl, I aspired to be a fashion designer and spent countless hours sketching gowns and women's apparel. During my high school years, I explored many different career options; I started an accessories business through a school-sponsored program, I worked for a major apparel company as an intern and ultimately decided that my love for helping people was the direction I wanted to go in.  SO, I went to college to become a social worker but later began a career in Human Resources on Wall Street (go figure!).

I spent a few years doing corporate events but it wasn't until my wedding in 2006 that I discovered my passion for planning and event design.  It was in that moment that I set out to start my own event planning and design business.  Marrying (pun in intended) my love for design with my business skills and my passion for helping people is what gave birth to Designs by Ayanna (yea, I know - it's a long way from social work :).
