Does anyone know how Ashley started her career? And how did she manage to steal Prada/Miu Miu from Russell Marsh? I've always wondered this about her and if someone could enlighten me about this, I would be very happy.

About Prada, I know she used to cast the campaigns when Russell Marsh was still casting the shows (Probably just continuing off the back of her earlier collaborations with Meisel). Then when Russell Marsh got caught accepting bribes from agencies to cast their girls he was replaced by Brokaw and she has been casting Prada and Miu Miu ever since.

Russell was being accused of taking bribes from IMG and Women Management for putting more of their models in Prada/Miu Miu shows.
When all of this news surfaced he lost many jobs. I believe he only has a few shows left.

As someone who's worked for awhile in casting, I can say that having a good eye for models is the LEAST important aspect of getting ahead in the business. I think a lot of the top CDs have mediocre taste in girls (Brokaw, Michelle Lee, etc.) and are poor judges of a model's potential. I remember seeing a pick list MIchelle Lee made a few years ago of new girls she thought would become major and only one or two out of ten went on to have any kind of success. My friend who knows nothing about modeling or fashion could have picked a better crop of faces. Russell Marsh had a decent eye, apparently, because he did discover a number of supermodels. The casting business is like many aspects of the industry in that it's mostly about personality and connections, not talent. The CD has to be an effective business woman, but discriminating taste and creativity do not figure into her job. She is basically an exec.
