Having fine honed her skills as an internationally celebrated designer, consultant and stylist Central Saint Martins alumni Ainy founded ANZ in 2014. Initially Ainy was commissioned to create custom designed pieces for some of her favourite music artists an unprecedented demand for the kaffiyah print pieces resulted in the birth of the label.
An intuitive designer, Ainy is heavily influenced by mood and the world around her. A love of knitwear, musical iconography, hip-hop culture, the arts and a celebration of multicultural society consistently provide the fuel for Ainy’s designs.
ANZ has an international fanbase including Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Krept and Konan, Nas, Estelle, Naughty Boy, The Wayans Brothers, Earth, Wind and Fire, Lala, Lionel Richie, Cameron Newton and RJ Mitte.
