AY 是我的姓，在中文裡，與「愛」同音，提醒自己要帶著愛面對世界的奸險與叵測；在英文裡，則與「eye」同音，叮囑自己在被社會磨得越來越世故時，不要忘了帶著好奇的眼睛繼續看世界。希望這裡能跨越各式邊界，書寫關於旅行、時尚、攝影、設計、藝術、文學、學習、生活風格、環境友善等等跨領域、超疆界的有趣新事物。Elise 期望能以更深刻、細膩的文筆，傳達「不只是表面」的時尚與生活態度。
Based in New York City, Elise Ay adores exploring cultural differences through every aspect of life. As a Chinese literature graduate loving travel, fashion, art and photography, Elise launched The Kaleidoscope to share what she experiences and thinks through delicately woven words. With her words, she hopes to express the “never shallow” facades of fashion and lifestyle.
Elise graduated from National Taiwan University, with a BA and an MA in Chinese Literature. She also holds an MA in Fashion Studies from Parsons School of Design. She has worked as a PR and marketing intern at several luxury brands in NYC, and sometimes freelance writing for A Day Magazine, The Femin, Wazaiii, HxxA, and Crossing. She is now a freelancer juggling between content creating and helping out in the fashion team at a luxury magazine in NYC.
Have worked with Beara Beara London, The Line Hotel Austin, Le Labo, Grown Alchemist, Sézane, Mapiful, Ana Luisa, RhinoShield, Unitude, and etc.
