Meet aimon

With a rich background as a fashion entrepreneur, Fashion Runway Show Producer, Stylist, and Creative Director hailing from Toronto, Canada, Aimon has now found her home base in Cleveland, Ohio. Her 8+ years of experience in the Canadian Fashion Industry have taken her to various cities like Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Vancouver, leaving a trail of successful events in her wake.Upon her arrival in Cleveland, Aimon embarked on a mission to explore and invigorate the city's creative industry with the fashion she deeply adored and understood. She quickly recognized the abundance of incredible creatives with stunning work, yet a lack of outlets for elevated fashion experiences.

Determined to make a transformative impact, Aimon set her sights on bringing elevated and diverse fashion events not only to Cleveland but also to the bustling fashion scene in New York City. She aims to create events that resonate on a national scale, events that embody diversity, quality, high fashion, and unwavering support for the community.Through her passion for inclusivity and diversity, Aimon is dedicated to curating events that transcend boundaries, celebrating the unique perspectives of creatives from all backgrounds. With a focus on uniting both the Cleveland and New York fashion communities, she aspires to build bridges that empower and elevate the fashion landscape, fostering connections that enrich the industry on a national level.
