36 Ashe Silk swatches
29 Sep 2015
Being a textile designer is a wonderful thing. Patterns, colours, rhythms, contrasts, interiors, motifs, fashion, objects, textures, tactility…these are my everyday ponderings…These are 36 Ashe silk swatches I recently gave to Akira Isogawa in April as part of a Fabric collection book. He told me at Telstra Perth Fashion Festival in September when I saw him, that he keeps them on his desk. Nice!
Kelsey Ashe meets Jimmy Choo!
01 Apr 2015
The one and only Jimmy Choo. The “Jimmy Choo Master Class” at Curtin University yesterday was pretty amazing. Over the span of a day we were taught about making shoes and the making of the icon Jimmy Choo, illustrating shoes and marketing products. I was sponsored to attend the event by Curtin University’s Fashion Department. What a beautiful soul he is! We were able to workshop our own creations and he absolutely loved my Ashe clutch purses and the print designs I use on them. Great Day!
