Ashley Stewart Presents a Night in Harlem
She is socially engaging, confident curvy and chic! She is Ashley Stewart the neighborhood girl gone global! By now you might have heard the buzz - the new CEO, James Rhee, has reignited the Ashley Stewart brand. I had the pleasure of meeting the Ashley Stewart team when they had a private event called Ashley Stewart presents a Night in Harlem for the CEO and executive team. The event was a mini fashion showcase and mixer where approved vendors, staff and the corporate got a chance to mingle, network and preview a few of the pieces from the holiday collection coming to stores this November.
Ashley Stewart is an iconic plus-size women's fashion brand, founded in 1991 in Brooklyn and serving women sizes 12 through 26 providing fashion forward, on-trend clothing at an affordable price. However, what impressed me more was that Ashley Stewart is not just a brand but a lifestyle - empowering confidence in women through fashion, social events and sisterhood. And you don't have to be plus size or a woman for that matter to join!
While at the event I assisted the Vera Moore Cosmetics team in getting the models looking MooreFab. We used Vera's Red lipstick [one of my favorite lip color] to complete the models' look, before they showed us how the curvy girl does it the Ashley Stewart's way. There was a lot of hype and excitement in the room, as the Ashley Stewart PR team led by Tamara demonstrated why they are the most socially engaged brand worldwide. Bwoy [in my Jamaican accent], they really know how to have good time, while looking confident and chic doing so.
I'm really glad I got a chance to attend the event, because interacting with their team showed me there is nothing like the Ashley Stewart experience.
Over the years I gained a few pounds that I wasn't too pleased about, so getting excited about a plus size brand is something I never thought would happen. But after hanging with the Ashley Stewart squad, it was reinforced that it doesn't matter what size you are, as long as you're healthy!
Be sure to check out their latest arrivals, there is sure to be something that will get you excited! And look out for the holiday pieces, which will be in store this November.
