Laura Ashley (1925 – 1985) was a Welsh fashion designer and businesswoman. She originally made furnishing materials in the 1950s, expanding the business into clothing design and manufacture in the 1960s. The Laura Ashley style is characterized by Romantic English designs — often with a 19th-century rural feel — and the use of natural fabrics.
