Born March 7, 1967 in Osaka, Japan. Ai is a mangaka, a comic book author. His is a stage name, based on the Japanese singer Eikichi Yazawa's name.
Since she was a child she has been an enthusiast of drawings. During the junior high school he took part in his first competition as a cartoonist for the Shueisha
publishing house (for which he still writes and draws), winning first prize as a debutant. In addition to design, Yazawa has a great passion for fashion, as is easily understood from her constantly edited and detailed comics in the reproduction of clothing, she also loves making clothes for herself. This passion led her to enroll in an Osaka fashion institute, which she soon abandoned to move to Tokyo to devote herself entirely to the work of mangaka.
To this day we see his passion still alive, witnessed by frequent references to the designer Vivienne Westwood
made in his manga Nana
