Seeing as I only went to one show this year (note to self, be more organised next season!), I better share these photos before the chaos of fashion week is forgotten!
With the theme of Rodeo-Drive, the collection was emblazoned with sequinned cowboy shirts, animal print, spots and plenty of fringing all set to the beat of a great soundtrack. It was all definitely in your face and well, it was always meant to be right? It’s Ashish! So as I said in my previous post, when I left the tent I heard some mixed reviews. Yeah it can appear a bit crazy but I really think that with a collection like Ashish’s, you need to consider the pieces independently of the whole ensemble.
These were my favourites! The over-sized, striped sequinned rugby/poncho style top was show-stopping when it appeared on the runway. You could hardly miss it! The western cowboy style top also caught my eye and reminds me of the many denim-jewel encrusted shirts that I’ve seen in charity/vintage shops.
The fringing was over-sized too which meant that they moved freely and had a life of their own and so they became statement pieces in their own right.
Regardless of whether it was your style or not, you have to admit that it was in true Ashish style; Fun, vibrant with plenty of his trademark sequins! I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next season!
PS: Made some minor changes and resized the photos on the blog and I’m loving the bigger pictures!
