After nearly three decades working her magic in the fashion and entertainment industries, stylist Araya “Art” Indra is well known for her quirks, clothes, and big sunglasses. But there is far more to Araya than being a stylist. Mysterious, one-of-a-kind, and inspirational – to the point that fashion insiders nickname her the “walking, living Vogue” – Araya is a style icon like no other. Her fashion wisdom shines through her determined eyes, often framed by her signature graphic eyeliner. On the job, she is daring and scrupulous, but in person, her warm personality is disarming.

Exclusively for 2Magazine, Araya shared with us her favorites, memories, and dreams, all in the span of two minutes.
