Designer Ashleigh Renee debuted two new lines for her brand’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection at NYFW. The first line is the Ashleigh Renee brand’s classic formal style. The second line, called “Dixit”, is athleisure created to be more masculine than the brand’s traditional clothing.
Renee’s love for fashion began at a young age when she started drawing and sewing clothes. She perfected her craft throughout college and was able to start participating in NYFW in 2013. This year, she’s hosting her third individual showcase. As her brand continues to evolve, Renee says she is reinventing her color theory and elevating the quality of her clothes.
The brand’s new formal wear is vibrant as Renee took inspiration from watching sunsets on the beach during her travels. Renee says loves working with color to bring out new things to the eye. She says the collection is really fun and flirty and gives happy vibes. The show models walked down the runway in sheer two-piece sets and sequin dresses.
Guests said they loved how the pieces seemed wearable for any daily activity. Carissa Mccan said she’d love to wear one of Renee’s designs on a date or just for a walk through the park. Taylor Douglas, another guest, said the collection reminded her of being on vacation.
Renee was pleased with how her pieces were received, calling the show successful.
