About Aarika Lauryn
Michigan native Aarika Lauryn has established quite a reputation for her style and art direction.
As a child, Aarika always had a natural sense of style and expressed her creativity through various artistic mediums. Her passion for fashion blossomed in her 3rd year of college when she decided to pursue a degree in Apparel Merchandising and Product Development. After graduating in 2012, Aarika began her professional career as a stylist working with various photographers in Michigan and Chicago as a signed artist with Factor Chosen, styling photo shoots for a variety of media publications and campaigns. Infusing both classic & modern styles and creating unique, made to order pieces provides a personalized statement with each project.
In fall of 2017 Aarika decided to continue to elevate her knowledge and skills internationally by attending the London College of Style for advanced editorial styling. Working with London photographers and publications assisted her in creating a new sense of style and gaining a global view on the industry.
She has gained extensive product and design knowledge working backstage at multiple seasons of New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week for designers such as Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Julien Macdonald, Disigual, Diesel Black Gold and more.
