Draped In Baubles
Inspired by her schoolteacher mother who sewed bridal and evening dresses as a hobby, Ashley Scott was exposed to sartorial craftsmanship at a young age.
Now 25, Scott’s accessories line, Drapes, positions her as one of Chicago's rising design stars; her unconventional use of pyrite, crystals, metals, and her signature tassels (from $50-$300) set her apart. After recently participating in shows in Bucharest, Romania, and Zagreb, Croatia, Scott readies her 2012 spring collection, which centers on the concept of valiant women.
Up next: A unisex line of jewelry and accessories.
