Style Crush | Ava Zech

Style Crush

There aren’t many people who can say they have a Best Seller book dedicated to them. Ava Zech is one of the few and she’s only sixteen. The young entrepreneur got the special shout out in Delivering Happiness, written by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh. Tony has taken the sixteen-year-old under his wing this summer as his protégé. Ava has been making the most of the learning experience, shadowing Tony throughout his back-to-back meetings without skipping a beat.

We caught up with Ava, who has been staying at Tony’s Airstream park in downtown Las Vegas to talk style, being a teen, and Marley, the neighborhood llama that roams around the lot.
