My third show on Day 5 of LFW AW13 with Vodafone VIP was Ashish. Ashish is always a top highlight of my week – HELLO SEQUINS AND MOODY MODELS – so I was suitably excited even if I was otherwise beginning to wither a bit from fashion overload.
The collection was called “Working Girl” – we saw our heroine in high vis sequinned jackets, practical denim aprons and mohair jumpers with pockets to keep spanners and loose drill bits. Her neon yellow and orange sequins as suitable for dodging traffic as she works in the road, as it is for avoiding cumbersome men.
The Ashish girl tends to fall under ‘poor little rich girl’ category – dying to be a down and out punk rather than the heir to a heap of old money riches. She wants to live like common people, she wants to do whatever common people do. She may be ‘mucking in’ on a building site this season, but she’s doing so in sequinned shawls whilst taking a three hour lunch break.
I love her.
Oh and massive kudos to Ali Pirzadeh at CLM Hair for creating the best hair look of LFW AW13 in my opinion…
My top five looks?
I’m hoping to get video highlights up ASAP, so thanks for your patience!
