London-based label Ashish as joyously led by Ashish Gupta put on a show-show last night (February 17, 2019) with a London Fashion Week runway that provided an earthy spin on the sequins the label is known for. Applied to create “crocheted” dresses, striped sweaters and formal gowns, the shiny textile was transformed into something entirely unique and new.
Reflecting on the pieces designed to look as though they were hand crocheted, Gupta wrote,”It took 72 different sequin colors to create this crotchet blanket fabric illusion!” He added, “Hundreds and thousands of little sequins were hand embroidered to make up these sequin pieces that give the illusion of crochet ✨ I also think I need my eyes tested after this season.”
Adding some very shimmery icing on top, the Anna Trevelyan-styled show included extra big bouffants teased out by Sam McKnight, along with lots of shimmery makeup by Isamaya French with nails done by Michelle Humphrey.
