10 Reasons Ashish Should Be Your New Favourite London Fashion Week Designer

Ashish never fails to dazzle us with its new collection, quite literally, as it’s usually made up of 95% sequins. Which is fine by us. 

There’s a reason why the queue to get into any LFW Ashish show is the only one that goes ALL the way around Brewer Street Car Park. It’s fun, fearless and always our absolute favourite. And here’s why it should be on your lust list, too…

1. The Glitz And Glam

We all have a weak spot for sequins and Ashish always uses A LOT in unique ways. Sequins are his signature and we love him for it. [Photo: Catwalking/Getty Images]

2. Not A Model Pout In Sight

His shows always stand out from the seriousness of 99% of the other scheduled LFW shows. Ashish knows how to create a fun experience for everyone and not just a boring catwalk display. Last season he even got his models to go down the catwalk on skateboards and yes, it was awesome. [Photo:REX Shutterstock]

3. The Dream Team

They say teamwork makes the dream work and the brand’s stylist, Anna Trevelyan, certainly does add some extra sass to Ashish’s dream team. She recently did a little job styling Rihanna for her ‘Work’ video and is Ashish’s right hand woman. [Photo: Yahoo Style UK]

4. Just A Casual Victoria’s Secret Model

Ashish always manages to get the coolest gals around to walk in his shows. This season it included internet phenomenon Charlie Barker and Victoria’s Secret model, Leonie Anderson. He always has diverse casting and has truly mastered it in a way no other designer has.  [Photo: Antonio de Moraes Barros Filho/WireImage]

5. Everything Is Wish List Material

His designs aren’t just whacky or too 'out there’. He creates stylish modern pieces with a bit of a twist so that no matter what your style, you can’t resist it. He has already had a collaboration with Topshop, if that’s not a stamp of approval we don’t know what is. [Photo: Jeff Spicer/Getty Images]

6. Celeb FROW? Always.

His huge celebrity fan base includes Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora, just to name a few. So you can always guarantee there will be a fab FROW. This season it included the uber cool Charli XCX. [Photo: Jeff Spicer/Getty Images]

7. He Always Makes A Good Point

Forever breaking the boundaries his show are always refreshing. However, they are not just unthoughtful displays of rainbow glitter. He often makes strong points on society such as gender fluidity but in a fierce and fabulous way. [Photo:REX Shutterstock]

8. Hair And Make-Up Is Always On Point

Wonder who created glitter roots? Probably Ashish. This season all models wore fabulous fro’s and you can’t get more funky that that! [Photo: Ian Gavan/Getty Images]

9. It’s Just SO Instagrammable

Ashish’s shows are always so aesthetically pleasing you can be sure there will be a Instagram spam for days after the show and you will want to regram it all. We know, we have. [Photo: Stuart C. Wilson/Getty Images]

10. It’s Basically A Party

This season’s disco themed collection meant a lot of loud music, dancing from everyone on and off the catwalk, as well as a lot of boisterous cheering. Everyone at the end of the show, just like Ashish himself, is left with a massive smile on their face.  [Photo: Jeff Spicer/Getty Images]
