My name is Kaya. I have travelled and worked across many countries and continents but always find myself connected to the fashion industry. Must be something about being surrounded about creative kindred spirits. I write. Mostly about the things that I love and interest me. Occasionally about something a bit more mundane for the paycheck, but hey, that's any creative industry. My personal style of writing is witty, precise and sometimes even sarcastic. It is representative of my humour and my peers. That said, i pride myself on my ability to adopt different tones and voices courtesy of working as a copywriter and proof reader for vastly different outlets. I'm also a pretty cool chick. And modest......
