Next to our design studio in downtown Los Angeles, the loft is both inspiring and calm. It's the perfect place to get to know and take home your favorite AYAI pieces. We have our full line available for you to shop.
Appointments in our loft are a truly personalized experience. Our stylist can help you find the perfect pieces.
The loft is by appointment only. You can book your appointment online here. Simply select an available time. We'll follow up with an email and check with you to see if there is anything special you are shopping for or specific that you want to try on.
When you get to the loft, our stylist will meet you and help you pick out some perfect pieces. You can try them on and get to know them before taking them home that day. We accept cash and all major credit cards.
We never make more than a few appointments each day, to make sure that you get a truly special personalized experience.
Most appointments take about 60-90 minutes, we reserve 90 minutes for each to make sure you have plenty of time.
You're welcome to take photographs, but please be respectful when trying on as the loft is a place to get to know and take home your new favorite pieces.

It's no surprise that New York native Fiona Briseño comes from a family who adores vintage fashion as much as she does. With a neck adorned in the best gold chains, she talked about the vintage store her mom once owned - complete with a gold bed - and everything else that shaped her style today.
WHAT IS ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I'm half Mexican! Nobody ever believes me until I show pictures of my mom.
WHAT IS YOUR DAILY MORNING ROUTINE?
I always wash my face immediately, and I'll do face masks and under eye hydrogels as I pick out a cute outfit... while drinking coffee of course.
WHAT BEAUTY PRODUCTS CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
LIPSTICK! Super into it... I'm also obsessed with eyeshadows and eyeliner. I love a smokey eye, like LOVE.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL FEMININE?
I feel like as I get older I'm learning how to take care of myself better, like health and beauty. I feel more womanly. The way I dress makes me feel feminine and strong and confident!
WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?
My mom inspires me in every way possible. I turned out to be very driven because of all the life experiences we went through... but we also grew up very stylish. She inspired my passion for clothes too.
FAVORITE IG ACCOUNT?
I follow a lot of fashion IG's from the 80s/90s. I live for it. The fashion, the runway, the looks. Everything I could dream of.
WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE IN YOUR CLOSET?
Oh my god I could never exclude a piece. I live for the collection I've been able to gather over the years. It's almost all vintage. It revolves around a lot of statement jackets.
BEST PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?
Wear it with confidence.
You're here. You get it. Don't miss a thing.
We fit from an extra small and grade up from there so our sizing is naturally skewed towards smaller sizes. For wovens we recommend buying true to size while we recommend sizing up for some of our body-con knits.
We have a great staff here at ARE YOU AM I ready to meet with you at our downtown loft space or work with you over email/phone to help you find the perfect fit. If you have any questions about what pieces would work best on you or which size works best for your body type, don't hesitate to reach out, that's why we're here!
