Unique Talents and Bold Details Coming Soon to Tampa Bay

In Designers, Events, Fashion on September 12, 2012 at 1:37 am

For those  who may be feeling a bit fashion starved, please try to hang on for a couple more weeks.  Tampa Bay Fashion Week is about to unleash more fashion than your little eyes can handle.

Think for a moment what amazing possibilities could arise when the owners of a posh salon transform their beauty talents into fashion.  Ashton Anderson will be unveiling for the first time their great artistic vision in fabric form.  As I wait anxiously, I have a delightful feeling that the runways  of Tampa Bay will never be the same.

What else can you expect to see at Fashion Week?  The House of Donshey will present unique pieces created from designer Dolly Donshey’s passion for creating beauty out of “ugliness”.

“I don’t know why I design the way I do. I’ve just always preferred the darker side to life. I love the beauty in something ugly that can be transformed into something visually pleasing. With every collection I create I just pull inspiration from my life at that moment…”

Known for her award winning conceptual films and theatrical shows, Dolly’s design aesthetic has been described as “Edgy Elegance”.  Any collection that incorporates leather, fur, feathers, lace, spikes, studs and crystals is surely one you will want to keep an eye on.

These are just two of the fabulous designers you can look forward to seeing at Tampa Bay Fashion Week.  Are you excited yet?

Andrew Ashton of LaPosh Styles Fashion Week

In Fashion, Trends on September 13, 2010 at 2:31 pm

The main focus of a fashion show is always the garments.  From exaggerated shoulders to sequined military jackets, we are all dying to see what will be next on the runways.  As important as the clothes, however, are the other components that make up a look.

If a model were to step into the spotlight with sloppy, untouched hair, this could easily disrupt the beauty of her dress.  From Paris to New York, all collections must have coordinating hairstyles.  Thankfully, Tampa Bay has Andrew Ashton.

Of LaPosh Salon, Andrew Ashton is the magic behind the beautiful models of Tampa Bay.  Soft curls with that pink lace top, edgy volume for the black leather piece, sophisticated chignon for the chic, tailored dress.  Andrew can achieve any look for any design.

The runway extravaganza for Tampa Bay will soon be upon us.  As you study each garment with delight and awe, do not forget to take notice of the hair, styled with perfection by Andrew Ashton of LaPosh. Also, catch Andrew and his team on Studio 10 this Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 10am. They’ll be taking runway hair and make-up to every day wear!
