SOCIETY GIRL OF THE WEEK: Aya T. Kanai

I am SO excited about this week's Society Girl. She is one that I have noticed on the pages of The Sartorialist many times. I didn't put it together until today that I was looking at the same amazing woman. Every time I came across her image she stood out. Who was she, where does she work, what inspires her? A mystery ensued... looking through comments... in search of a reference to who she was.. I finally solved the puzzle.

Until recently she was known as the Fashion Director at NYLON magazine and seems to be heading over to TEEN VOGUE (my favorite!) Her sense of style has a relaxed flare, but at the same time is eye-popping. Her work can be seen here and to get inside her creative head, check out this interview.

She has become a top ten in my books, our Society Girl of the Week is...

Great choice. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of her in those behind-the-scenes photos in Nylon. She's usually in some awkward position during a photo shoot trying to reach over to fix a celebrity's collar or something.
