Hayley Starr was born in DC to a humanitarian mother and a sage father. As a child, she attended a French school, where she developed a love of beautiful food and a (tiny) ego problem, and learned the language. At seventeen, she moved to NYC and dabbled in fashion and at schools, but mostly pursued a good time. At 20, she fell in love, moved to LA, and met Hayley Starr (her inner superhero/muse/highest self) in a daydream. She re-emerged, new and improved, ready to combine her passions for art, self-expression, improving the world and being a good human. She has since designed multiple collections, collaborated with amazing fellow artists, owned an installation space called “The Divine Quest of Hayley Starr and Company” in West Hollywood, sold her infinite dress collection on both QVC and The Today Show, and written/illustrated children’s books. She currently lives in Venice, CA with her best friend Lexy (a spunky shitzu) and recently opened her new studio/store ‘The Quest by Hayley*,’ a space filled with light, color, art, clothes, jewels and products she loves, as well as work by other artists.
