Ashley Ann, founder and designer of the fashion line MYNE, is getting a lot of press these days, from major national pubs to the hottest fashion bloggers. Of course, it does help that celebs like Rachel Bilson, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family have picked up on her cool L.A.-girl style. What's cool about that list is that they are women of many different shapes--and that's because Ashley Ann ensures that her designs are not only sophisticated, with a quality cut, but also suited for any modern woman's body type.
In short, Ashley Ann makes it easy to fall for MYNE's chic feminine silhouettes in luxe fabrics and custom prints. And you can pop into Fresh Salon's boutique on Main Street in downtown Sarasota if you'd like to get your hands on the line.
