Chic with a rocker edge.
This is how freshman designer Ashley Nell Tipton describes her eponymous collection, Ashley Nell Tipton. San Diego designer, fresh out of design school has literally taken the design world head on! When I heard of this emerging designer, quickly I searched her down, and featured her collections on the site!
Ashley’s collection is tailored for the 20-30-something female that is chic with a rocker-edge. Juxtaposing street with Glamour, Ashley Nell Tipton draws her inspiration from a trip to Paris and London to visit fellow design students at the Atelier Chandon Savard school in Paris. It is there she knew her future collection was going to be inspired by the British rocker flare of London.
Women’s curves inspired the construction and my love for color and a fight against the phrase “black is slimming” affected my color choices.
For Full Figured Fashion Week, Ashley created a collection that is full of bright hues and bold patterns incorporating both boldness and finesse, just like Ashley Nell Tipton!
Take a look at a few of my favorites!
