Ashley Rowe launched a small, six-piece collection of denim styles in 2016, quickly picked up by Need Supply Co. as an exclusive before expanding to boutiques worldwide. Seeing a desire for minimalist design in fashion, Rowe’s work explores the ideas made possible by shaping a single fabric into different forms. Riffing on a simple, cropped denim T-shirt, she might stretch the silhouette into a short dress, top it with a wide funnel neck or add sleeves to create range of pieces. The clothes are at once a backdrop and a statement, morphing with the person wearing them. Built in sturdy fabrics like denim and raw canvas, they are loose, protective and tough, all manufactured in Marfa, Texas.
Let's see what we can do about that.
