Born in Newmarket, a small town in the Canadian province of Ontario, model Ashiko Westguard first skyrocketed to the top of the fashion industry at the age of 18 when she signed with Next models.
At just over 5’7, Ashiko’s long dark hair, almond-shaped and magnetic brown eyes, pouty lips and perfect tan have made her the kind of model we can’t help but fall in love with. And while the fashion industry as a whole would have us believe that if a model is not 5’9 and above then there’s no place for her in the big leagues, just like Kate Moss and Josie Maran, Ashiko Westguard has definitely proven them wrong.
Striking a chord with audiences around the world, Ashiko has modeled for some of the most recognizable brands in the world, and as the face of a plethora of campaigns that range from beauty products to automobiles, she is one model who has proven that she can easily transition her look to fit any market.
When it comes to fashion, Ashiko has brought her undeniable sex appeal to the camera modeling for designers and labels such as Buffalo Jeans, Brave Leather, Chio Swimwear, Garnier, Redkin, Dita Von Teese Lingerie and Calvin Klein.
What’s so unique about her work is that she is able to portray the sweet and wholesome girl next door just easily as she portrays the sultry vixen, something she’s proven through her work modeling for companies such as Azay Primavera, The Bay, Sears, Macy’s and JC Penny.
Over the years she has been featured on the covers of countless magazines internationally, including leading women’s publications such as Woman, Essentials, Women’s Fitness and more.
While her breathtaking beauty has definitely been a huge draw factor for international clients, Ashiko’s dark features and her talent for portraying a fierce, bad-ass woman have also helped her land jobs in national commercials for Honda, Cafe Royal, Rolls Royce and Axe deodorant.
Besides having the necessary ability to draw her audience in with every pose, Ashiko makes everything she models look so good that you’ll want it too– exactly what companies look for in their go-to models.
Ashiko, who has remained a leading force in the modeling industry since she began her career nearly a decade ago, is currently signed to Wilhelmina in Los Angeles, Montage Models Montreal and Sutherland Models Toronto.
