About Us

Ashley Wallace was born in Los Angeles, and raised in San Francisco. She is thrilled to be back residing in warm, sunny Santa Monica, and living just blocks from a real beach.  Before getting her MBA from Pepperdine, Ashley completed her undergraduate studies at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco.  She decided to meld her two greatest loves, fashion and business, to create Couture Goes Corporate, and she is so excited to see it grow.  In her free time, Ashley enjoys trying new recipes, yoga (who doesn’t love some Downward Dog?), and relaxing on the beach, living the “so-cal” life and soaking up the sun!   

Cynthia Lira’s dedication to the fashion-forward lifestyle of todays working woman can be seen in both her passion and practice. Her raw talent was initially recognized by Bloomingdale’s at the opening of their flagship store in San Francisco, where Cynthia was the sole specialist and stylist for Laundry by Shelli Segal, becoming one of the youngest and most successful in the West Coast.

Seeking new challenges, Cynthia took on an opportunity at the small yet trendy boutique, Juicy Couture (you may have heard of them), where she again quickly set herself apart from her peers and worked her way into management at one of Juicy’s most profitable locations nationally.

After completing her education in Criminal Justice at San Francisco State University, Cynthia decided to learn more about the demands placed on todays fashion conscious and time challenged woman by becoming one herself. She dove headfirst into the legal world at a high-profile San Francisco law firm, positioning herself to gain unparalleled insight into the lives of San Francisco’s most influential and highly visible women.

With her unique combination of experience, insight and creative talent, Cynthia brings a bold yet nuanced edge as Creative Director of CGC Daily.
