Ashley Burghardt    

Age: 23
Occupation: accessories designer

This curly-haired beauty is the owner, designer, sales rep, and marketing team behind her own accessories line, Ashard Richley. “I love it,” Burghardt says. “It’s fun to be able to create something and take it to market. And people really like it and go crazy over it.” Her dream is to see one of her creations in Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar. She recently married the guy she met on her first (and only) blind date (at Victor Tango’s, their favorite restaurant ever since). The newlyweds enjoy cooking together, challenging themselves to use the strangest ingredients they can find. Fun fact: Burghardt loves fondue. She registered for (and got) three fondue sets as wedding gifts. She regularly uses all three.
