A connoisseur of design perfection and quality, with eye for beauty and details and a lifelong passion for art, wildlife, and trend-setting luxury Fashion, Azi creates exquisite fashion with luxury fabrics and striking designs taking inspiration from wildlife and intricate details of ancient architecture.
Azi first started drawing dresses which took inspiration from her Barbie dolls at age 6. She closely observed nature and wildlife, spotted them while hiking and started drawing birds, picking up frogs and drawing them at age 8. At age 14, Azi painted on her clothing and even made her own hand-painted tops and dresses. Her passion for design grew as Azi studied Fine Arts for her undergraduate years during which she painted over 200 unique paintings and textile designs.
After her undergraduate Azi’s curiosity about Artificial Intelligence and Robotics led her to study MS in Computer Science, PhD in systems engineering, and a career in technology with focus in program management for large scale innovative autonomous systems programs.
After completing her PhD, Azi combined her passions for fashion, art, and wildlife and in 2016 FashWand LLC was born. In 2018, Azi launched FashWand by Azi Wearable Fine Art Gallery. Shortly after that, Azi launched The Wildlife Jewels® Collection, a collection of luxury wearable fine art embellished with striking Wildlife paintings where each Wildlife represents a unique gemstone. The Wildlife Jewels collection is dedicated to sharing the majestic beauty of wildlife while helping to protect endangered species.Email: Azi@FashWand.com
