What Ashley is Wearing

Ashley hails a cab in style wearing Danskin black footed tights that she cut to suit (Style 69, $9.50), a Danskin women's wrap skirt in theatrical pink (Style 1886, $20.00), and a Danskin black tank leotard with double diamond back detail (Style 2433, $32.00). While it is true that cabs will stop for passengers who are waving their arms like an agitated bird, deep down they appreciate taxi hailing technique that incorporates a stretched out limb and a strong line. In fact, there are rumors that Ashley's graceful cab hailing technique helped to increase the supply of cabs in New York.

For more of Ashley's work, see Double Feature, a recent ballet where Ashley danced a major role,
and The Kingdom of the Sun Sprites, a still photography ballet.
