We believe you have the power to define who you are, all on your own terms.
"Being a modern woman is hard. We're constantly giving to everyone else - our family, home and career - yet, we often neglect the most important person - ourselves. Which is why self-care is important.
Sometimes it’s about making lifestyle decisions for your overall well-being, consciously saying "no" to others, while at times it's about treating yourself."
We believe comfort and confidence should not be affected by size, shape or colour. We believe in bettering the lives of women - through thoughtful design, quality products, and supporting causes to empower women.
"At Ashley Summer, we dream up and craft modern, quality inner wear that speak to and represent today's passionate, diverse woman.
The design process starts with us thinking about what we really want to wear right now. Our lingerie is designed by us in Singapore, and handmade by women artisans across Asia. Our commitment is to produce quality pieces that last through the seasons and to reduce our footprint on the environment. We source premium laces and fabrics from wholesalers who have over-ordered fabric from other designers and fabric warehouses to produce our intimates in small-batches. Most of our designs are available in limited quantities which make them really special.
We are grateful for the women who came before us and paved the way to make our journey easier. We believe choice=change, and that you and I have the opportunity to do something bigger than ourselves, together.
We hope to pay it forward to the women of tomorrow."
OUR DAILY RITUAL
Putting on lingerie is perhaps the most intimate and luxurious act of self care - a certain je ne sais quoi*.
*something (such as an appealing quality) that cannot be adequately described or expressed
"The daily ritual of dressing up is a way to appreciate the beauty in the everyday; a ode to the female form and to embrace the strength in femininity. A celebration of her quiet resilience, grace (with grit) and empathy.
There's just something so precious about pieces worn close to our skin (and hearts). It's the first thing you put on in the morning, and the last thing you take off at night. It should make you look and feel good. We hope you our handmade pieces uplift you, and inspire you - to be."
