Loose, fresh and inspired by the colors of a watermelon filled summer.

Ashley Bailey, owner and founder of The Byrd Collective, has a varied design background with a strong focus on floral and event design. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, she left home for Austin to study art history and art at The University of Texas. After living in Houston and NYC, she then headed to the Deep South, by way of Savannah, Georgia, to work as the Director of Events at SCAD. It was there, inspired by the creative energy, eccentric personalities, and gifted artists, that Ashley started creating The Byrd Collective.

The Byrd Collective is a floral design studio based in Austin, Texas. With a loose and laid-back aesthetic, Ashley creates floral designs that are the epitome of romantic-soft, lush, and just a touch wild. When Ashley isn’t contributing to Camillestyles.com, snapping photos on Instagram, or creating living art, you can find her holding her 20 pound 5 month old son, loving on her independent 4 year old daughter, spoiling her 5 year old dog, and thanking her Cross Fit obsessed husband for choosing her.

Editor’s Note: Ashley, we adore you and are wishing for a speedy recovery!
