The Turn Up

“It’s not about going to a party. It’s life as a party.”

Diane Von Furstenberg

As the saying goes, “time flies when you’re having fun”…or is that the case here?

Five years ago, two best friends decided that it was time to set a new standard for the fashion, beauty, and art industries. We were tired of seeing fashion passed off as style, cookie cutter looks, and trends gone bad. The vision began on a much larger scale, and a blog was the furthest from our mind (more on that in this series). In our case, the time flew by because we have been trying to make sense of our own little plot twist. And sometimes the journey was far from fun!

In the midst of it all, lessons have been learned, we’ve gained an extraordinary tribe, and most importantly, our mission has become a reality — we are inspiring and celebrating creative entrepreneurship. We have much to celebrate and we couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone else but YOU!


So, join us in our month long celebration of our five year milestone! Time to turn all the way UP — ISSA PARTY!

With Love + Style,
