My Youtube Journey
Hi Guys! I'm Ashley Parke and I'm a fashion and lifestyle influencer, blogger and YouTuber. The name of my blog was most obviously inspired by my actual name but is also inspired by a well-known boulevard from one of my favorite places on earth, Manhattan, NY. Let's just say the actual "Park Avenue" is in one of the more affluent parts of town. I'm a native New Yorker and Parke Avenue just makes sense for me.
Fashion was a big part of my life but I didn't realize how much until I started my youtube channel. My mother would always make sure I had the cutest outfits growing up and I remember watching her get ready. Needless to say, my mother is where a lot of my passion for fashion comes from.
So why did I start my blog/youtube channel? People at work or on the street would compliment my clothes or ask me where I shopped. So I thought, after tons of encouragement, that I'd start sharing my ideas and information.
Parke Avenue is a place for me to inspire and be inspired by women like me and completely different from me. This is where we can be bold and experiment or stick to the classics. I started this just wanting to share outfit ideas but along with that I've discovered my voice and realized that I can create a life I want. Parke Avenue isn't just my blog, it's my brand. I look forward to sharing more than just my love for fashion with you all.
