Ashley Dean-Parson

Dean of Fashion Glamtique owner knows from first-hand experience that full-figured women have unique concerns in the clothing market and how difficult it is to find that perfect item. 

Dean of Fashion’s owner was inspired to open a plus size boutique after having several encounters with designers not catering to the stylish full-figured woman. After countless disappointments, Dean of Fashion was born in January 2010 as Memphis’s first and only independently owned plus size boutique.  Since opening, Dean of Fashion has produced several successful fashion shows and community events that promote self-love and self-esteem. Dean of Fashion has been featured in several local magazines, newspapers, and nominated for several awards and received the awards for Best Boutique in 2011 from the DMAG, the SIS award in 2012, and a Women of Excellence Award by the Tri-State Defender in April 2014. Dean of Fashion was also a featured designer for Full Figured Fashion Week 2013 in NYC and her fashion blog was selected by Lane Bryant as one of the top 50 plus size blogs. Dean of Fashion continues its growth by recently opening a new boutique that offer’s salon services that fulfills all beauty enhancement needs as well opening up the stylish plus size apparel to all sizes.  Dean of Fashion wants women to embrace their curves, and not hide them. Dean of Fashion encourages her clients to take fashion risks and break “myths and rules”, when it comes to fashion rules, there are none at Dean of Fashion!
