London Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Ashish

There was a distinct American vibe to the opening of this collection shown on the last day of Spring 2009 London Fashion Week. It began with a military feel with camouflage pieces that were made glamorous with a lot of sequins.

Certain glossy magazines this month have declared the end of grunge, but with collections like this it seems fashion's love affair with grungey dressing is never quite over. However, for Spring Ashish has merged the grunge trend with the current penchant for texture creating it with badges, sequins and patches.

There was a gambling theme with dice and playing card imagery throughout teamed with '90s stone washed denim. Sequined flapper-style dresses hung beautifully with opened backs and long scarf-like batwings trailing behind.

It was an experimental yet wearable line, with dresses that were designed for the red carpet. These dresses were styled with khaki parka jackets for a dressed-down Brit pop look. For me, the collection was one of the highlights of the week. What do you think?

I am always really impressed with the label Ashish. The clothes are beautifully made and stunning designs. His shows are always a visual treat (beautiful clothes, models, hair and makeup always) and he has a very cool cult following. He is one of the truly talented designers working today. I look forward to saving up and buying pieces from this new collection.
