Meet Ashley Sky Walker
It all started when I got my first camera. After that, doors opened up like never before. I began to see the world in a different light and experience it through the camera’s lens. Being raised by a single mother in South Central Los Angeles, taught me the importance of respect and patience when dealing with the ebb and flow of life. After Los Angeles, I studied at Howard University and Central Saint Martins in London, mastering the ins and outs of the fashion industry. Once formally educated, I lived in New York to actually experience the world of fashion.
During that decade working in the most iconic city in the world, I had the opportunity to work with high end designers like Diane Von Furstenberg and brands like NIKE and VIBE Magazine. Now I’m back in Los Angeles and am finally in a place where I can give back to the community that made me who I am today.
LEIMERT PARK THREADS is the culmination of all my work, experience and education and a big love letter to the culture. Although, I only started LEIMERT PARK THREADS in 2017, it has already been featured on HBO’s Insecure and TEEN VOGUE Magazine. As far as what’s next, that remains to be seen but if I know one thing is for sure, this is only the beginning.
