LFW: Ashish AW11

Ashish was the closing womenswear show at LFW this season, and what a finale! The sequin studded label hosted their show at the BFC Showspace at Somerset House with a plethora of front row celebrities. The soundtrack to the show was provided by British Hip-Hop artist M.I.A, who took her place amongst the likes of Paloma Faith and Marina Diamandis (Marina and the Diamonds) on the 'frow'.
Unforunately, in usual Ashish style, the clothes were made entirely from sequins so my photos and videos couldn't capture any form of detail whatsoever from my faraway seat on the back row!
The 'punk with a lower case 'p'' inspired show brought us shabby chic moth eaten sweaters, ripped denims, fraying twin sets and an exciting array of fun tartan dresses adorned with a million sequins, in true Ashish form. Skirts were skimming the thighs and some a little more modest in length, but both versions were paired up with a devilish selection of ripped up cardigans, jumpers and tights with a cobweb design on the knee. Shoes were monochrome checked patterned creepers, not a stiletto in sight to complete the underground grunge look.
Ashish are way ahead of the pack when it comes to print clashing, whether it's checked or striped, tartan or plaid, the Ashish girl doesn't care if she's matching, she's a poor little rich girl who knows she looks fantastic and dazzles in whatever she wears, quite literally too with the amount of sequins...
