About Laura Ashley
One Brides writer penned that a Laura Ashley flower-girl dress “is so adorable, you may be tempted to design your whole wedding around it.” Such is the power of great design, a hallmark of every Laura Ashley candle, perfume, and shoe. Today, the company produces everything from wallpaper to mattresses—as well as clothing for men, women, and children—all designed with Laura Ashley’s eye for classic style.
Decades before she was a home décor and apparel mogul, 28-year-old Ashley was visiting London’s Victoria and Albert Museum when inspiration struck. A patchwork exhibit sparked her first artistic endeavor: creating geometric headscarves à la Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday at her kitchen table. By the late 1970s, Ashley was selling women’s clothing, home furnishings, and tea towels at more than 70 shops worldwide. The nearly explosive expansion continued, but the quality of design never faltered. Laura Ashley’s designs continue to grab the attention of fashion and home décor editors around the world, including those of Dwell, Country Living, and Redbook.
From quartz movement to luminous hands, we break down what makes a watch tick—and why you should get one.
