On Saturday, March 24th, 2017 Ashley Stewart, the leading plus size retail Corporation and Lemon-Lime Media hosted it’s #FindingAshleyStewart tour in Houston, Texas. The Ashley Stewart tour will include stops across the U.S., as the brand searches for the women that “effortlessly personifies Ashley Stewart and everything the brand stands for; kindness, perseverance, resilience, confidence and empowerment.” Two lucky contestants will win the grand prize of the #FindingAshleyStewart contest which includes a trip to NYC where she will be crowned Miss Ashley Stewart, a complete Ashley Stewart makeover & wardrobe, an Ashley Stewart photo-shoot, TV segment and more.

The Houston leg of the tour included a model call and audition for women of all ages, sizes, and ethnicities. The event was hosted by Ashley Stewart Marketing Specialist and Style Expert Tamara Ivey. As the event started patrons quickly realized this was no ordinary event, as guests arrived they were photographed on the pink carpet hosted by Houston Style Magazines own Totally Randy and given the celebrity treatment including beauty products from Crème of Nature, elegant cuisines from O Taste And See Catering, desserts by Forever Yours Creations, door prizes and more. Tamara, the event host, entered the room strutting down the runway setting an example for the women participating, the qualities of the next “Miss Ashley Stewart.” There was a total of 12 models selected to advance to the in-store fashion show for the chance to become the next Miss Ashley Stewart. Each contestant would walk the runway and would be given a question in the area of kindness, perseverance, resilience, confidence and empowerment. Each contestant brought it on the runway, adding their own flare while exuding confidence. While it was a tough decision, the audience voted on the two models that would advance to the next round in the #FindingAshleyStewart contest. The tour has three more stops scheduled before making the final decision of the two models that will be selected as the next Miss Ashley Stewart.
