When I first moved to Atlanta one of my first goals was to dive into the plus network here. I was invited to an event, a pop up shop, by this amazing custom designer Christian Omeshun (Ashontay). I couldn’t make it to the event, but I still reached out so that we could get to know each other.
Since reaching out to Ashontay, we actually learned that we have a lot in common. Our drive for our dreams, finding God in every process of the journey to our purpose, and our very common diva-tendacies, haha. She seriously reminded me of a past friend from another life!
The icing on the cake was her intricate work, from scratch. I got a chance to check out some of her custom pieces and I can honestly say it was one of the best I’ve ever seen. Before, I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with custom pieces because something always felt “off.” Like it was homemade but not the good kind of homemade with love. Ashontay’s craft was different, and it spoke for itself. She gifted me with this gorgeous one-shoulder Diamond Floral dress that by far exceeded my expectations. The midi length, the fitted silhouette, and the dramatic ruffle sleeves literally turned heads and had everyone asking “Where’d that come from?!”
I scored major points when I wore this to TCFStyle Expo last month, and so did the Christian Omeshun brand. Honestly guys, I’m smitten when it comes to Ashontay’s gifted hands and her custom curvy brand. You’ll definitely see more of it in my closet this season.
