Transitioning into her true love of fashion design and marketing, she designed and produced her first clothing line at age 20 introducing the line to national online retailers and independent boutiques on the east coast. Wanting to expand her line on the west coast, Ashley made the move to Los Angeles and quickly started gaining traction by participating in Los Angeles Fashion Week, LA Market Week, New York Fashion Week and the famous Magic Show in Las Vegas. Ashley’s latest collection can be seen on Lea Thompson, Skyler Samuel, Katy Tiz, Christine Moore and many more.
Eager to pursue her many passions under one umbrella, Ashley launched Ashley Michaelsen PR (AMPR), a unique PR boutique agency based in the heart of Hollywood, CA. AMPR specializes in up-to-date marketing strategies, fashion showroom benefits, fashion design and image consulting. Additionally, the agency focuses on creative brand developments, fashion production services, styling and design studio services, product placement in TV segments and film social media management and content creation.
Being involved with the Hollywood and NYC glamour for much of her life, Ashley is truly humbled by her passion for the PBR, or Professional Bull Riding, as she travels the tour on the weekends representing Monster Energy. Raised in a small town outside of Rochester, NY, Ashley is familiar with humble roots but never knew the world of PBR existed. Growing up in the hectic modeling/acting and fashion world, Ashley lived the complete opposite of the western lifestyle, much less being familiar with rodeo sports. Inspired by both of these worlds, Ashley set out to create a blog that combines both western and contemporary fashion into one, hence the title: Fashion, Beauty and Bulls.
FBB is a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog that combines both contemporary and western fashions along with embracing the western lifestyle and stops of the national PBR tour.
