Hello, my name is . . . . .

My name is Ayanna Listenbee. I was born with a pen in my hand. -Well, not literally, but as soon as I discovered the magic of the pen, I could usually be found with one in hand. When I got older, I didn’t think being a designer was a viable career option, so I changed majors quite a bit in school. Meanwhile, I was constantly sketching and collecting inspiring images of clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry and interiors. I would often paste these images into notebooks and even categorize them by style. When I look back, I see that everything I was doing was a blueprint of what I would be doing in my career as a designer. Today, I design my own eponymous line of handbags.  I am a wife and mother of 2 little ones. I am also in the process of finishing up my BFA in Fashion Merchandising/Product Development. Life is hectic, but I am blessed to be creating the life I want to live everyday.

The LookBook Philosophy is an online continuation of the inspiration books I have always created. It is where I share and discuss the things that provide inspiration in my life; fashion, photography, art & interiors to name a few. It is also a place where I will share some of the trials and personal triumphs of balancing a family and growing a business. The LookBook Philosophy is about inspiring creativity, sharing beauty and encouraging others to follow their dreams. Enjoy your time here. Lets share and inspire each other!
