Azi is a lifelong artist and fashion designer. She was formerly a robotics program manager and shifted her career in 2016, when, during a trip to the historic town of Florence Italy, Azi was inspired by the intricate beauty of antique and ancient architecture, and Italian fashion that she decided to pursue her lifelong passion for art and fashion. FashWand was born shortly after this trip.
