Long Live the Sequins! 12 Reasons We Love Ashish
Today, the V&A celebrates British designer Ashish Gupta as part of its Fashion in Motion programme with four free live catwalk shows. Known for his irreverent sense of humour and injections of runway fun, the designer will be showcasing 10 years of his wild designs as a London Fashion Week fixture. Curator Cassie Davies-Strodder's admiration for the designer is clear, having said; "His designs from the last ten years have celebrated subcultures, blurred boundaries between evening and daywear and made sequins 'urban.'" Past shows in the programme have seen retrospectives from such diverse British designers as Sibling, Jenny Packham, Peter Jensen, Giles Deacon, and Roksanda Ilincic.
