Kaylee Schatz-Berg spent most of her early childhood immersed in the outdoor abundance of the Paradise Coast in Naples, Florida. From relatively modest beginnings, Naples’ beauty offered Kaylee the perfect backdrop to motivate hard work, perseverance and an appreciation for sunny skies, salty air nature’s endless beauty.
At the age of seven, it was clear Kaylee's surroundings began manifesting daily inspiration. In creatively accessorizing her otherwise basic wardrobe ensembles, Kaylee became determined to push the limits. Attending a school that required daily uniforms often limited her ability to express herself. Nevertheless, Kaylee found a way to defy the status quo by decorating her saddle shoes with markers and colorful tape, rolling her skirts to shorter lengths, tie-dying her socks and accessorizing her basic white shirts and backpacks with colorful patches, coastal tokens and fabric swatches. Perhaps this initiated her lifelong love for art and obsession with individual expression.
After college, Kaylee pursued a decade long career in marketing, real estate and interior design in both the Washington, DC and Raleigh, North Carolina suburbs. While surrounding herself with beautiful design, eclectic people and dynamic visual stimulation, Kaylee believed she was destined for something more encompassing of her passions. She wanted to find an even larger platform to share her love of design, travel, and fashion. And in keeping with that goal, Asher Marie was born!
Asher Marie offers a lifestyle collection for all seasons that delivers globally inspired pieces, at an affordable price point, graciously complementing today’s most dynamic woman.
After marrying her husband Jake, and becoming a mommy to her son Asher, Kaylee became increasingly aware of the need for women to feel passionate about their overall sense of self and create vibrancy in their daily lives. Kaylee shares:
"It’s easy as a working wife and mother to get lost in our daily routines and focus all of our energy outwards, perhaps sacrificing a piece of ourselves. My goal for Asher Marie is to remind women of our independent beauty and to offer a bit of joy through fashionable pieces, while celebrating our daily lives. Each season, we work diligently to carefully formulate a synergy between comfort and style. I am pleased to present you with the Asher Marie collection."
When not traveling with her husband and family, Kaylee currently divides her time between North Carolina and Florida, and is blessed with her second baby boy, Kai, who was born in December 2015.
We hope you join us on our journey!
