What inspired you to be a stylist?

I had a fashion sense for as long as I could remember. At an early age, I collected & treasured fashion magazines. I spent hours watching Fashion TV and dreamed of Paris and New York Fashion Week.

How do you feel about fashion?

Fashion is the easiest way for me to express how I feel. You dress up first for yourself. When you wear outfits you feel good……your confidence goes through the roof. Fashion is therapy too…..how many times when you are not having a very good day, you went shopping and bought this killer outfit, or bag or shoes and immediately your mood, your facial expressions and you aura changed to a happier you.

How would you describe your fashion style?

I follow trends and try to keep up with the season’s latest styles. But I have to say that in my years as a Stylist I learned that nothing speaks more than being comfortable, secure and feeling sexy and powerful. Also, I’m a big believer in no prints, solids will take you very far. Summers are just so wonderful to me because you will see me basically wearing white a lot. Winters, I love to go all the way, mixing leather, cashmere, fur, boots, gloves and hats. Because I live in Miami I have to say Fall is my fave time of the year, I get to dress up every day.

Do you feel like you influence fashion and style? If so, how?

I want to believe that I do and actually I have many clients that tell me…how they love my Boho Chic Style. I believe in changing, mixing fabrics and basically wearing what I feel good in. My best advice to my clients is……LESS IS MORE!

What are your 3 best accomplishments?

  1. Helping clients in their most difficult times, being a good listener and most importantly being a FRIEND to them.

  1. I do what I love for living, how amazing is that?

  1. Running Fashion Week New York for many years for BCBG Max Azria and Herve Leger for 12 years and making sure all my clients had the best time ever!

Fearless, relentless, champion describes British boxing Light Welterweight Champion Ashley “Treasure” Theophane. Born and raised in a tough area of London, he used his negative surroundings as fuel for his successes. His hard work, drive & relentless determination to succeed under extremely negative situations makes Ashley “Treasure” Theophane a Michael Allenova Man!

Ashley’s belief to succeed led him to New York at the age of 22 to fight in small halls across the country even with no money to support his dreams and little support back in the United Kingdom. His humble beginnings gave him the humility to train relentlessly with some of the world’s greatest fighters in order to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become a champion in the boxing world. His hard work would pay off on February 19, 2011 at the world renowned Wembley Arena in London, Ashley won his first British Lightweight Welterweight title by knocking down Lenny Daws twice in the ninth round, winning by unanimous decision. Again, on December 28, 2012, with a first round knock-out of Chaurembo Palasa to obtain his second GBC Welterweight title.

Ashley collaborated with the biggest name in sports and joined Mayweather Promotions (The Money Team) on September 14, 2013. His bout ended in a tough loss by split decision against Pablo Cesar Cano. However, his relentless drive to win was awarded with a technical knock-out against Angino Perez on the Mayweather vs Maidana undercard on May 13, 2014. Ashley would go on to a six game winning streak and a loss against Adrien Broner on April 1, 2016 for the vacant WBA Super Lightweight title. Ashley returned to victory and obtained his 40th win by unanimous decision on December 2, 2016 against Yakubu Amidu. His latest bout against Shoki Sakai resulted in a loss by unanimous decision on August 22, 2016.

With 40 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw & 11 KO’s, Ashley’s journey for greatness continues. Get to know him a little more through these questions:
