ASHISH Presents "Bejewelled Forms of Protest" at London Fashion Week SS24

Celebrating queer joy through sequins and color.

ASHISH made a triumphant return to the runway for London Fashion Week‘s Spring/Summer 2024 iteration, presenting a collection seemingly inspired by dreams. Working alongside creative director Linder Sterling, the showcase saw ASHISH return to form through a dizzying display of cosmic sequins and blindingly bright embellishments, interspersed with tongue-in-cheek statements and playful design details.

Featuring a cast of models from different backgrounds, walks of life and ages, the showcase offered a light relief from the confines of fashion week, appealing to our every sense. Read on for Hypebae’s summary of ASHISH SS24.

WHO: The likes of Princess Julia, Becky Hill, Nicola Roberts and Clara Amfo were in attendance at the dazzling runway show, alongside Deputy Mayor Justine Simons, Asha Puthli and Susie Lau.

WHERE: Held in London’s renowned Nobu Hotel on Portman Square, guests were seated in circular rows in order to complement the unique set design — which featured a bed and crescent moon alongside models Sheerah Ravindren and Aadam Sheikh.

TOUCH: As always, ASHISH’s unique use of sequins and embellishment captivated the audience, alongside the use of props like spiky pineapples and dangly keys. Feathers, tassels, ruching, beading and crochet textures featured throughout the collection, offering a masterclass in touch.

SEE: SS24 showcased every color of the rainbow and every color in between, with the designer’s playful design ethos shining through each look. Bedazzled skirts, blazers, dresses and teeny tiny pants sashayed down the runway, paired with literal statement pieces that featured phrases like “I LOVE FAIRYS” and “NO ONE LIKES US, WE DON’T CARE.”

HEAR: Soundtracking the vibrant showcase was Indian singer-songwriter Asha Puthli, paired with a dream-inducing mix by Maxwell Stirling.

TASTE: Bold colors and bodacious silhouettes prove that quiet luxury is coming to an end. Elsewhere, statement garments tell it like it is, and itty bitty clothing continues to reign supreme.
