Ava Hu / avalove
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn poet and designer, Ava Hu, creates hippie chick clothing for creative women. She studied poetry and sculpture at Bennington College and Sarah Lawrence and went on to earn an MFA in poetry from The New School. Poets and Writers Magazine recognized her with an Amy Award for best female poet under 30 in New York City.
Her playful designs interweave peacock feathers, flowers, hummingbirds alongside snippets of her poetry. The end result is uniquely charming casual wear intended to make the wearer feel grounded and inspired at the same time.
All clothing items are silk screened by hand in her Bushwick, Brooklyn studio.
