Ashlee Brooks launches F/W Ashlee Brooks Collection

Dallas fashion designer Ashlee Brooks will debut her new 2012 Fall/Winter Ashlee Brooks Collection, an eight-piece contemporary women's apparel line that conveys individuality, confidence and style. The fairy tale-themed collection offers a blend of structure and tailoring, elegance and femininity. It will make its debut in Dallas at The Pin Show on February 23 followed by a runway appearance at L.A. Fashion Weekend, March 16-18.

Ashlee Brooks explains that her “fairy tale villain” theme is to capture “a strong exterior that is bold, charismatic and powerful but still elegant and feminine. Everyone has an inner fairy tale villain.”

Consisting of silk, cashmere blend, and leather fabrics in merlot, grey and black, the collection displays the undivided talent of Founder/Designer Ashlee Brooks: solid craftsmanship and tailoring in riding jackets, softness and wear-ability in graceful short and long dresses, comfort and movement in wide leg pants, and a wicked imagination with black leather pants.

While most fashion designers begin their design process with an illustration, Brooks begins her creative process with a color scheme followed by choice of fabric. “It is like the fabric speaks to me and inspires,” she explains. Once the fabric is determined, she begins draping and finishes the creation with an illustration.

“I am honored and excited to be able to show my new collection in both Dallas at The Pin Show and Los Angeles at L.A. Fashion Weekend,” said Brooks. The Pin Show, to be held at The Fairmont Hotel in Dallas on February 23, is a collaborative runway show featuring 38 upcoming fashion designers. Brooks designed an additional four gowns to debut at L.A. Fashion Weekend presented by ScreenShop at Sunset Gower Studios, March 16-18. Only a select few emerging designers across the nation were invited to participate in the L.A. fashion shows.
