Asanyah loves Design and the way a designer’s mind works. From a young age at Design and Architecture Senior High school in the Miami Design District to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and Polimoda in Florence Italy. Asanyah is committed to always being a student of design. She spent several years in the industry in New York and after completing my graduate degree in London at Central Saint Martins, she returned to the States and worked at Macy’s Florida Division as an assistant buyer. During that time she also started teaching at Miami International University of Art & Design and Broward Community College while working on her own mini collections. She most recently took her love of teaching and knowledge of fashion to West Africa where she taught at schools in Lagos, Nigeria and Accra, Ghana. That year on the Continent allowed her to learn extensively about native techniques and the ever popular Ankara fabrics. “I love mentoring and sharing my passion for design with students.” She is now in her second year as Chairperson of the Miami Fashion Institute.
