Ashish SS17 collection – cultural diversity in the context of Brexit

Ashish Gupta personifies the cultural intermingling. With a message for love and diversity Ashish SS17 collection celebrates Indian culture.

With an unexpected ease Ashish combines modern day street wear with traditional heritage.

“His intricate embroidery and sequin work was applied with equal love to saris, salwars, churidars, lungis, and sherwanis as it was to track pants, tracksuits, denim basketball shorts, T-shirts, and other staples of urban sportswear.”

Luke Leitch for Vogue

The catwalk

Under hundreds of dangling lights from a sky-like ceiling, models from all different backgrounds and races stepped on the stage. Uplifting, personal, and politically relevant collection that mesmerised its audience at LFW last September.
