What better way to make an entrance than in bright colored, high-octane hand embellished pieces? If you haven't already been introduced to Ashish aka the "king of sequins" then you are in for a special treat. Ashish Gupta, who heads his London based label Ashish, has been bringing shimmer and sparkle to the industry since he graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2000. Originally from Delhi, this designer continues to revisit his roots by hand making all of his collections in India. In past seasons, you may have found baggy, and shapeless looks fully adorned whereas this season the styles are much more structured and refined. The surprise abundance of pearls in his current Fall collection fell right in line with his heavily jeweled sportswear pieces alongside his prom like tulle skirts and gowns.
I don't typically wear a lot of sequins, but I find these glistening slogan tees, lace track pants, and opulent distressed jeans completely intoxicating. I know I am not alone in this feeling as many of Ashish's pieces have been worn by various starlets like Madonna, Miley Cyrus, and Victoria Beckham to name a few. If your pockets aren't steep enough to indulge in one of his Ready-To-Wear styles, then check with Topshop from time to time as he has been creating collections for them periodically.
