2018 Fashion Week El Paseo
Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising’s Debut Designers
Pasadena, California, native Ashley Podrebarac (fashion designer name: Ashley Neville) calls her collection “Unapologetic.” Her designs are created for strong and independent women and are highly influenced by urban art and graffiti. She created hand-painted prints throughout her collection, which were inspired by artist Jackson Pollock. After graduating from the FIDM Advanced Fashion Design DEBUT program, Neville landed a job as an assistant designer at a major women’s apparel company in Los Angeles. Her goal is to one day launch her own company.
