Due out this September is a new book about Laura Ashley and the company she founded with her husband Bernard. I worked at three of their U.S. stores over the course of several years. I can’t help but feel gratitude to those in the company who hired me despite my being very young and inexperienced. It turned out to be a great place to learn, gain confidence, and later springboard into my other jobs- interior design and window display.
Just for fun I had my friend Hope pose wearing the same Laura Ashley style dress that I found on ebay.
