Owner and Self taught Fashion Designer, Ayeshia Smith, discovered her love for fashion at an early age around 5 or 6 when she was introduced to classic films by her older cousin. At the age of 13, she purchased a Cosmopolitan magazine and there was a DIY article on how to repurpose an old pair of jeans into a handbag. She was up for the challenge and after creating and wearing her new bag to school, her peers showed an interest and she started selling them at her high school. She knew that she wanted to be a designer and after her mother purchased her first sewing machine, she started teaching herself how to sew and the rest is history. She has encountered many challenges over the years on this journey to get her handcrafted garments seen and sold, but she has chosen to never give up on her dream. Ayeshia is so happy to say that she reached a milestone in her fashion career with debuting her newest collection “Memphis” named after her hometown of Memphis, TN at New York Fashion Week on September 12, 2021. She is working on releasing a Men’s collection in the Spring and a childrens collection in the Fall 2022. Support the dream and shop AyeshiA!
