Ashley Day brings big-city fashion to small town


NASHVILLE, Ind. — Fashion designer Ashley Day lived in New York City after graduating from Ball State University, but missed the quaintness of home.

So she hauled her fashion talents back to Brown County, Ind., and begged her mom for a small boutique corner in Mulberry Cottage.

The boutique quickly outgrew the corner and moved owner Loretta Hayes from her office space upstairs.

To showcase the clothes, Ashley organizes fashion shows twice a year that draw 200 to 300 excited women waiting to see the newest acquisitions and purchase them on sale.

Ashley’s most recent creation is the Mulberry Mini line, which she launched at the Mulberry Cottage Spring Fashion Show on Friday, May 8.

This video is a peek at this spring’s show and hear more about Mulberry Minis from Ashley.

Visit Mulberry Cottage at 46 W. Main St. in Nashville, Ind., or call 812-988-9803. Keep informed about new items and happenings at or on Facebook at
