About The Brand
Carleen, founded in May of 2012, is a Los Angeles-based womenswear collection designed by Kelsy Parkhouse, who is inspired by denim, quilts, Americana, and nostalgia. They repurpose textiles as often as possible, because of their patina and beauty, and also because of their more-gentle impact on our planet. They always choose fabrics made from natural fibers, including organic, recycled, and deadstock whenever possible. Everything they make is made in Los Angeles, where they can keep an eye on quality, reduce our carbon footprint, and also monitor the working conditions of the skilled workers who make our clothes.
From the beginning, their primary inspiration has been the rich history of American quilting, a textile that continues to inform the Carleen aesthetic season after season.
Ashley typically wears a modern size small.
Height 5' 10" / Bust 34 / Waist 26 / Hips 37
