New Orleans / New York artist Ashley Longshore has taken the world by storm, building a global brand with a daring style that promotes positivity and authenticity. In her journey from self-taught artist to Pop Art icon, Ashley has collaborated with the likes of Gucci, Maybelline, and Diane Von Furstenberg, has been featured in Vogue, Elle, and Forbes, and … you get the picture. Ashly Longshore is a big deal in art, fashion, and culture.
