I wouldn’t consider a pool hall a typical place to hold a fashion show but I wouldn’t consider Ashley Rose a typical designer either.
The Latex & Lace, Catsuits & Corsets Ball took place on February 2 at Flat Top Johnny’s. The event
featured 10 designs from Ashley Rose Couture Designs.
Following two burlesque performances, Ashley Rose’s tattooed models walked in pieces ranging from a sheer lace bodysuit with bullet shoulder pads to a flowing white gown with floral details.
The crowd was very enthusiastic watching the runway and was just as entertaining. Some girls still had on latex pieces from the other designer in the event, Dawnamatrix Designs.
Ashley later told me that, “She’s never received so many compliments on a show before.”
The collaboration of the two designers seemed a natural fit. Both concentrating on hand made alternative wear for the girl who’s not afraid to show some skin.
In true Ashley Rose fashion, she and all of her models took a celebratory shot at the bar when they finished their finale walk.
