Ashish AW 2011 - London Fashion Week

Not going to lie, Ashish show was a standout for me. A little daring, a little tomboyish, and a lot British.  As a lot of the new season's trends are heading in the feminine direction, Ashish is an alternative for when you are feeling a little bit rebellious. There was a A LOT of sequence and A LOT of holes. Absolutely loved the ripped jeans combined with Union Jack tee's and leather! I also liked that Ashish added a bit of humour to his collection with the "Hard Times" and "Holly Crap" knits. The two pieces suits reminded me of Chanel, albeit tripping on acid (I mean it in a good way!). It is just so great to see colour in so many of the new season collections, Ashish being no exception.

Here is a slideshow/movie with some of the looks - all photos, video and editing done by me. Soundtrack - Hot As Hell by Drop The Lime (unfortunately I could not find any of the songs used in the actual show soundtrack)

p.s. the movie is HD so you if you run it once and let it download, the second time you watch the quality should be decent (depending on the speed of your internet connection)
