Name: Ashley Kuczenski
Location: Los Angeles
Occupation: I’m a managing event coordinator for a luxury fashion jewelry brand. I’m also a former fashion and entertainment journalist, and I keep very busy with freelance work in writing and social media marketing.
Perfect coffee order: iced soy latte
Go to drink at happy hour: champagne - I believe there’s always something to celebrate!
Favorite brand: I love just about everything Alice McCall does; her feminine, retro, playful looks couldn’t be a better fit for my style!
Dream Vacay: Anything that both is culturally rich and has beautiful tropical scenery. Bali and the Caribbean are at the top of my list.
Favorite fashion trend: I’m obsessed with thigh high boots paired with miniskirts right now! And I love that the mod look in general is in style at the moment - I’m stocking up!
Trend you would NEVER try: Athleisure. Or delicate jewelry. I’ve accepted that I’m just not a casual or understated person.
Now, let’s get a little bit more personal…
Describe yourself in 5 words:
What is your ideal job and why? I’d love to transition into wedding planning one day. I think it would be so beautiful and meaningful to be a part of putting together such an important day in people’s lives!
Who is your role model? I’ve been a huge fan of Marianne Faithfull since reading her autobiography a few years ago. I really admire her toughness and how she managed to turn her life around (not to mention her musical talent, perennial coolness, and great style!).
If you could change anything in the fashion industry, what would it be? I’ve never liked that the fashion industry places perhaps too much weight on who you know over what you know.
What impact would you like to make in the world? I’d like for people to feel they are better or happier for having known me.
“I don’t really care if I’m strange, I ain’t gonna change” - Joan Jett
