Ashish was the last womenswear show for LFW and while the photographers pit let out a jubilant cheer, the catwalk began to fill with Ashish's sparkly creations.
We've seen lots of tweed and herringbone this week and Ashish had obviously had the same memo. The collection, heritage based took us on a sequined journey from Union Jacks to various hues of tartan. Taking note of hippy riots and current 'pop culture' there were slogan jackets and jumpers saying 'Hard Times', 'Holy Crap' and 'Teen Idol'. Knitwear, often layered over sequin dresses, tunics or slouchy trousers were ridden with holes and were in line with Ashish's distressed, glam, style. Ripped, bleached, jeans and kilt style minis were the un-sequined basics of the collection.
The favourite piece though was the Chanel style tweed jacket, created in sequins, but with real frayed pocket edges, fantastic. Will Ashish ever run out of things to sequin?
