This brand not only celebrates beautiful women and their natural bodies but uplifts and rewards the efforts and hard work put forth from women in their everyday lives. Through #ASGives, Ashley Stewart also engages in programs such as the #AshleyCollegeTour to make long-term investments into our communities.

The Finding Ashley Stewart Tour consisted of traveling across the country to several states, hosting a sip n’ shop along with a fashion show. Through this tour, Ashley Stewart hand-selected women who embodied leadership, confidence, resilience, kindness, and public service. On September 14th, 2019, the chosen contestants from all over the U.S. gathered for a sold-out show at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York with the hopes of being crowned Ashley Stewart 2019.
