More than a hundred influential fashion industry experts and North Texas style setters turned out on March 1st to meet Ashley Burghardt and celebrate her win on television's 24-Hour Catwalk with a night of cocktails, fashion and music at the Candle Room. The event showcased the Ashard Richley 2012 collection of handbags, and saw the head designer and co-founder debut her Spring 2012 apparel collection.
Ashley Burghardt was chosen by D-Magazine in 2010 as one of Dallas’s Ten Most Beautiful Women and is also listed amongst the state’s top twenty designers by Texas’ Next Top Designer. She has served as a coach to a young Dallas girl on MTV’s hit show, Made. Her most recent triumph was on the new Lifetime series 24 Hour Catwalk where she competed against three other talented designers to craft a three look collection from designated materials within a period of only 24 hours. Ashley’s design championed the runway and secured the monetary grand prize of $10,000.

Dallas Light and Sound assisted Plan B PR's Alison Volk in producing the Candle Room event, supplying flatscreens for the viewing party, model riser boxes for the fashion show, pinspot lighting, and hours of Hi NRG tunes from DJ Tony Dean.
