Ali has always loved fashion and design. She graduated with a degree in Advertising and Marketing. After working at Nordstrom, Anthropologie and most recently the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in California, her love of design and fashion solidified into a passion. She currently works part time as a fashion stylist and writer, and has been a guest contributor on KSL's Studio 5 Show. She lives in Minneapolis, is married and has a two-year-old son who has been a newfound source of her creativity. She has traveled extensively and has had the opportunity of living in 6 states in the past 7 years. Moving and traveling has opened her eyes to rich sources of inspiration. Clothes, landscapes, billboards, people, books, magazines, food, weather, and children are a carousel of ideas for her. She loves mixing different colors, textures and patterns to come up with unexpected combinations. She is very adventurous and loves to try new things!
