Ashley Coleman Designs Presents

2019 Prom Dress Auction



(Little Rock, AR) – After graduating from Tennessee State University with a degree in Fashion & Interior Design Ashley Coleman returned home to Central Arkansas with an expectation of becoming a successful business owner. However, her path was redirected into a field of service and she soon became one of fifteen women listed on the city’s fire department roster. Over the years she has kept her “passion for fashion” by stitching garments only for family and friends. With Prom Season approaching she has decided to step out on faith and share her talents with others in addition to creating a unique way to give back to her community while re-introducing her brand.  Proceeds from the 2019 Prom Dress Auction will help fund the Ultimate Prom Makeover, designed to provide a young lady with a free head to toe makeover for prom season. This auction is one of many that will bring local small businesses together while changing lives through education, fashion and service.
