After years of featuring in numerous publications and campaigns, AMIAYA became known for their aomoji-kei style, a creative fashion subculture influenced by trends in Harajuku.

The label has now been around for 10 years, a mix of concepts of romance, minimalism and street style. “During the design process, we are looking to create clothes and accessories that are positive and fun. The name Jouetie comes from the French word ‘jouet’ meaning toy. Seeing kids play with toys, you can sense the joy it brings them, and we want our customers to feel the same when they try our items.”
A true visionnaire as the AMIAYA’s popularity has continued to shine leading to numerous television and international fashion week appearances. Their awe-inspiring, flamboyant style and trademark pink hairs will surely turn heads wherever they go.

If you were born in the 90’s, you ought to know that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen made their debut as child actresses in Full House and continued their successful journey as American fashion designers. At the age of 18-years-old, they built their very own fashion empire called Elizabeth and James and The Row creating minimalistic formal attire and staying away from fashion trends. They initially did not want people to know it was their creation as they worked tirelessly behind the curtains. They are detail-oriented and passionate about what they do and most importantly value their team extensively. They are the true definition of letting their work do the talking.

It’s also our job to find every imperfection in there to make sure that we’re constantly pushing ourselves and training our eyes and making sure everyone is served. Just evolving and learning.” — Mary-Kate Olsen

Qjin & Qwon
Last but not least, Qjin and Qwon are the ultimate Korean twins. We love how these twins stay authentic and quirky on camera especially on their YouTube channel, Q2Han with over half a million followers! They created a loyal community of Qtees. Bringing the element of humor into everything they do and not taking themselves too seriously
Qjin and Qwon lived the American Dream as they grew up in Oklahoma City and graduated from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Initially entering the fashion industry as textile assistants, which they then realized did not peak their interests. That is when they decided to go for further studies in fashion business management to start their own brand. They stumbled upon YouTube and they saw the opportunity in sharing their skills and about Korean culture via the ubiquitous platform.
As twins, they have a great relationship with one another and have proven to be perfect work partners.
“We are the best and honest team. When you are working with someone else, being honest is the key to making everything work.” — Qwon
It is intriguing to see their two enigmatic styles, as they appear chic and minimalistic on Instagram and very bold and colorful on YouTube.
Oversized t-shirts and coats are something they take pride in wearing often. Accessories on accessories: knee high colorful socks, hats, layered jewellery, ornamented heels and boots. Experimenting and playing around with the pieces they have, simply having fun with their looks.
They certainly know how to make a statement. Scroll down to see our favorite looks:
