The petite and well-poised blonde stopped by Forty Five Ten to host a presentation and trunk show for her fashion line, The Row. Sarah and I dropped by before heading to Todd’s bash. Ashley was very easy-going and sweet, donning a long beige cashmere sweater (which she asked Sarah andÂ me to feel so that we could witness the quality…very nice), a pair of skinny leather pants (the line’s signature piece), and knee-high Balenciaga boots. The actress/designer, who was staying at The Mansion, mingled with guests and even signed autographs for those that asked. Jump for more details and a blurry photo that Sarah took with her iPhone.
Ashley, who designs the line herself, told us her favorite piece from the Fall 2008 collection is the grey alpaca coat. The line, which launched spring 2007, consists of mostly neutral and minimalist separates that can be mixed and matched for everyday wear. A reversable jacket made of goat fur and suede was a big hit with customers like Tina Craig. In case you are wondering, the clothes are not made only for people her size. I tried on a pair of the skinny pants and was pleasantly surprised when the small was too big. Dallas was only a pit-stop for the pint-sized fashionista, she’s heading to Paris on Tuesday to show the collection to the European buyers. You can buy the collection locally at Forty Five Ten and select pieces at Barneys.
