A childhood dream has officially come true!
The one and only Trina [aka Katrina Laverne Taylor] — American rapper and TV personality, whom I just saw in concert recently at the Legendz of the Streetz Tour in Tampa, Florida — is DRIPPING in the @shopmarrincostello collection on two back to back covers of Ellements Magazine. What's more — both of these covers and full magazine spreads were styled and creatively directed by my dear friend, #costellobabe, and celebrity stylist — Ambika Sanjana. Ambika and I were introduced several years ago by a mutual friend and fashion designer — have been working together in the fashion space ever since. What's more — she is a literal walking billboard for the collection, and uses Marrin Costello Jewelry exclusively in nearly every one of her projects and campaigns.
Over the past decade, AmbiKa has become a highly sought after celebrity stylist in Los Angeles, CA. Her work includes features in numerous internationally published magazine editorials, notable styling for clients at red carpet events as well as designing custom wardrobe. AmbiKa also styles countless celebrities and talent on a variety of well know TV shows.
