I had the wonderful opportunity to meet a talented designer at her trunk show held at House of Couture Boutique in Buckhead. Ashley R. Ryles is the beauty and brains behind her label AR’RYLES which features meticulously crafted designer pencil skirts. Ashley is a graduate of the Miami International University of Arts & Design and has interned with the esteemed label, Badgley Mischka. She is now based in New York but has roots in Atlanta. She has lived in Miami and Europe as well which has helped broaden her keen fashion sense which is evident in her designs.
April McRae, the owner of House Couture was a gracious host for this fabulous event. Her shop is located on Bennett Street in the heart of Buckhead. She carries chic, edgy, one-of-a-kind clothes that will catch the eye of any fashionista. Next time you’re in the area stop by and tell her I sent you
Ashley really kept the curves of a woman’s body in mind when designing her skirts. They are fitted in the waist and curve naturally with the hips before tapering at the bottom just below the knee. If you look closely, you can see the seam she has created carving out the hip area. It’s a look that is flattering on a full-figured woman or it can accentuate the curves on a smaller frame. My favorite is the gold leather over lay skirt pictured above but they are all super sexy!
In the picture below, I’m here with the ladies in our AR’RYLES skirts. It’s so funny to me how I look like I’m standing in a hole between these two glamazons, London, Ashley’s sister and Ashley on the right.
