Ashley is the current winner of Project Runway Season 14 and was highlighted on the runway at New York Fashion Week. She had an early passion for fashion and remembers discovering her love of sewing when she would design clothes for her Barbie’s. She learned to sew on her grandmother’s sewing machine when she was just seven years old.
Ashley showed her collection at New York’s Full Figured Fashion Week in 2012 where she received rave reviews from the press. One of her goals is to help full-figured women feel good in what they wear and she hopes to be “THE” Full-Figured Fashion Designer. She understands what plus women want and would like to give curvy girls a chance to show their style with chic edginess.
Ashley says: “My collection is a full figured collection for the woman in her 20’s or 30’s who is a fashionista! My collection is an artful combination of glamour and street fashion. I love color and I’m very inspired by curvy women and helping them feel good in their clothes. I want to offer plus size women the opportunity to wear fun colors and to avoid the pit-falls of only wearing black because many curvy girls think it is the only color that is slimming. I pictured my muse roaming the streets of Paris unabashed and feeling confident in their stride while wearing designs that are not seen in full figure fashions today. The clothing line is filled with bold colors and finesse… just like me!” She has sold her collection to women all over the world.
