London Fashion Week AW12: Ashish

London Fashion Week AW12: Ashish

Hindsight is a funny thing. It’s now been a month since the craziness of London Fashion Week, and I’m still chewing over the numerous shows I saw that week. Now, with a bit of space and time between the barrage of shows, I find that I’ve started seeing things slightly differently. For example, I’ve always been a huge Ashish fan, but was left feeling a bit disappointed after the AW12 show, titled “Bollywouldn’t”. Immediately after the show, I remember thinking it was a bit too gimmicky, perhaps trying a bit too hard. Now, after a couple of weeks to let everything sink in, I’ve changed my mind a bit. Without the chaos, without the blaring music, without the celebspotting, without the tiredness – I actually quite like the collection.

I’m still not overly excited about the overt Hare Krishna references or the hippie dip dyes and new age symbolism, but looking through my pictures again, I now see tons of beautiful separates I love. The knitwear – with or without the quirky slogans – is simply fantastic and shows Ashish can do more than just sequins – which he just happens to do better than any other designer around.

So yes, hindsight is a funny thing. It makes you look at things differently and can sometimes even change your opinions – on this occasion in a positive way!
