AW 2015 COLLECTION

Amidst black lips and pops of pink, Ashley Williams debuted a Fall/Winter 2015 Collection that was "all about the girls." Hints of punk rock were balanced with Ashley's signature playfulness and rows of Swarovski crystals in pinks and greens accented the collection's edgy girliness.

 

SS 2015 COLLECTION

Doodled patterns, crystal mesh crop tops, graphic colors and oriental details brought the spirit of Sixties Pop to Ashley William's first solo show. 

William’s collection was inspired by the Age of Aquarius and the revolutionary spirit that gripped the world in the 1960’s. Traditional silhouettes and fabrics reflecting Eastern and Western culture were bound together and featured handmade silk fastenings, feminine tea dresses and Swarovski crystal mesh miniskirts and bra-lets.

I’m so excited to have the chance to bring Swarovski crystals into my collections for the first time. It’s allowed me to add a new dimension to the garments that had previously been unexplored
