I call it “Rock Star Fashion!” Ashton Hirota debut his label “Ashton Michael” at Style360 during New York Fashion Week. The collection titled “Black Heart” was an unisex look at monochromatic designs. Black, nude and white pieces in rich wools, cashmere, stretch lambskin leather and denim were all hand-perforated. There were two emerging trends included… men in skirts (waddup Kanye & A$AP Rocky) and women in drop-crotch pants (with subliminal black hearts hand-sewn into the sleeves and chest of – hence the “Black Heart” collection name). In short – the collection was one of the coolest I’d seen all fashion week. Equally cool was Ashton. He was a pleasure to interview. Watch out for my upcoming post including pics and what he shared. Check out his pic with pop rock singer Eryn Woods – known as “Punk Barbie”!

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
