Ashish is the latest designer to have a retrospective as part of the V&A Museum's "Fashion In Motion" series of free fashion shows. Its been a decade of the designer's sequin collections coming down the catwalks at London Fashion Week, so a fitting time to dig thru the archives of his workshop in India. The sparkly looks started with silver screen Hollywood sirens in floor-length gowns, gradually shifting to two-piece sportswear separates and even neon hi-vis vests. All set against the glinting gold gilt Raphael Gallery, the metallics shimmered and reflected the spotlights with model and muse Larry B's snake hips sashaying the way.
