LFW Ashish Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 Catwalk Show
Ashish is one of my favourite designers. Indian-born Ashish Gupta has been a big hit in Europe and Japan despite being relatively unknown in his home country. This season he welcomed fashionistas, including singer Paloma Faith who regularly wears his ensembles, to the world of Ashishistan, a former Soviet Republic, fondly known as the pearl of the Black Sea. Inspiration for the collection was drawn from lazy days in the sunshine, glistening mountain peaks, Turkmen rugs, traditional Uzbeki design, babushka handknits and Russian nostalgia including striped pyjamas, a nod to the days of Stalin’s gulag.
The show finale took place to the sounds of East European turbo folk. Check it out below…
