Sweet, sassy, and captivatingly alluring; that’s the look that LA area fashioners were treated to at the recent Ashley Michaelsen Collection fashion show on Friday, February 21st at TenTen’s award winning rooftop venue in downtown L.A. The sought after model turned designer, with her uber feminine, sexy, and sweet California Girl looks, has not only capitalized on her signature image - but also turned that image into delectable ready-to-wear fashion eye candy for both the runway and the streets.
The AM Collection features fun and flirty jeweled toned dresses with A-line silhouettes, mid-thigh hemlines, and cuts that flatter feminine curves. Michaelsen chose a bevy of petite models with “Bridget Bardot-esque” bombshell looks similar to her own to showcase her latest collection that has something flattering for almost every body type. Hair and make-up were provided by Britney Moya and her team at Rock Me Up Cosmetics, as they know exactly how to create those bombshell looks.
The fashion show, which was put on by TenTen Wilshire as part of their “Fashion Fridays”, gathered insiders from both the fashion and entertainment world eager to preview Ashley’s line in conjunction with the launch of her new online boutique which offers her current designs as well as additional beauty must haves, a fashion, beauty, and empowerment blog, and news and event footage of the model/designer and her collection.
When asked about her latest fashion show titled “From New York to L.A.”, Ashley Michaelsen states, “I am from NY originally and that’s where I started the Ashley Michaelsen Brand. I had always done fashion shows in NYC but could never dream of doing one in LA. NYC is one of the fashion capitals of the world but I was always dying to expand on the west coast.” Ashley Michaelsen and her AM Collection are in full force on both coasts and can be seen in select boutiques as well as purchased on her online boutique.
