Asher Levine: the Designer

Asher Levine’s design skills first developed at age 10 while taking a sewing course in his native Florida hometown. A natural fascination with fashion design quickly emerged, and in 2006 Asher moved to New York City to pursue a Managerial Entrepreneurship degree from Pace University.

While taking business courses, Asher independently began creating conceptual designs out of the basement of his West Village apartment.

His experimental outfits were adapted by many nightlife personalities and could be seen across the New York underground club circuit.

Asher’s debut Fall/Winter 2016 collection came shortly after his graduation, at which point Asher started creating outfits for various prominent performance artists.

In September of the same year, Asher's Spring/Summer 2016 collection was shown in a presentation from his midtown showroom.

Have a look here at the entire collection.
