Let’s get to know Ashley a little better!

Urban Mondays has such a dope concept behind it, what made you launch your brand?

Thanks! I’m a creative spirit at heart. I love to make things and see them come to life. I combined that along with my love of fashion and UM was born.

How has fashion and style shaped and impacted your lifestyle?

To be quite frank, fashion has contributed to me living a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been a chef for 10 years, so as you can imagine, I love to eat and find comfort in great food. Once fashion became an everyday part of my life, I realized how important it is to me that I look and feel great in clothing. It may sound vein, but being healthy is an intricate part of life, no matter how or why you do it.

Being a free spirit is gratifying but sometimes can get draining, how do you get your creative juices flowing?

My mood board! Any creative mind needs one. It has things that inspire me–not only eclectic and original fashion statements, but also things I want to create, people I find fascinating and images that remind me of my trips overseas.

What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to girls who wanted to pursue their dreams but are too nervous to start?

1. Get over those nerves!

2. You’ll work the majority of your God-given life. You’ll spend more time at the office than at home. Don’t settle. You’ll look back and have too many regrets.

3. DO WHAT YOU LOVE. Find a passion and make it into a career. If it doesn’t exist, well, then, you’ve got some inventing to do.

We tend to pull characteristics from others in our lives or from people we admire, who inspires you and why?

There are many people in the fashion world who inspire me, but I draw my greatest inspiration from my mother. She is strong, independent, diligent, beautiful, successful, loving and nurturing. People are drawn to her. I am inspired to not only be like her, but also to be able to support her in every way possible.

We are all about empowerment, What does EMPOWERMENT mean to you?

Being proud, taking risks, making moves!

Time for the Faves! Celeb Crush? Artist? Food? Movie?

Celeb Crush: Wow, I have so many! Rihanna, because she’s so goddamned sexy and her style is out of control. Russell Westbrook because he takes risks and doesn’t look back. A$AP Rocky because he’s original and Paul Walker because, I mean, look at the man (R.I.P).

Favorite Artist: Jay-Z. Best rapper alive!

Favorite Food: I’m a chef. I cannot and will not answer that.

Favorite Movie: I’m also a movie fanatic. Let’s go with…Training Day. Denzel is

incredible.
