Pop Art And Fashion Co-Exist In The Works Of The New Orleans Based Mixed-Media Artist And Fashion Darling
New Orleans-based mixed-media artist, Ashley Longshore, has been compared to a young, feminist Andy Warhol for her obsession with pop culture figures and brands. Dubbed by The New York Times as “Fashion’s Latest Art Darling,” she has emblazoned the path for pop art and fashion to coexist. Ashley is Bergdorf Goodman’s first female artist solo exhibit in its 100-plus-year history, designed the retailer’s “Palette at BG” café and was recently IMG’s Artist-in-Residence for NYFW. She also recently appeared on Bravo’s Project Runway.
Ashley’s art inspired Christian Siriano's Fall 2019 runway collection. She has collaborated with Diane Von Furstenberg, Gucci, Judith Leiber, Lingua Franca, and Maybelline, among others. Ashley professes on the regular: “I’m brave enough to be who I am in a society where there’s a lot of pressure to be perfect. I can only be me and I encourage YOU to be YOU.”
