Born and raised in Cambridge, Ontario Ashley Paquete has always shown interest in, and thrived off of fashion and art. In August of 2008 she successfully completed the fashion design program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, receiving her fashion design diploma and a space on the runway for L’Oreal Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2009. This collection, “Captivate Existence” did exactly what it was intended to do. It captured the attention of many and a few pieces even made its way to Milan, Italy with a well known hair stylist from London, Ontario. This collection was simply inspired by nature itself from a cloud filled sky to a beautiful open field, and everything captivating in between. Ashley has since participated in different fashion shows, and is keeping busy with new and exciting upcoming events.
