Ashish can consistently be described as ____ meets sequins – automatic I’m there – and this time the sequins are taking on the rodeo. Sure I could have done without the feathers and headdresses (so tumblr), but as the collection was inspired by cheesy wild west movies like Calamity Jane I’m sure it was supposed to be silly, so it didn’t really set off my cultural appropriation detector. The painted McDonalds/Heinz/Coca Cola logos on the cowboy boots definitely don’t scream serious business. Other than that, the chain fringing on the denim is great and I’m crazy about the all sequin checked shirts.
Anyway, I came out of the show in high spirits, despite falling down the stairs in front of a bunch of people I didn’t know, so there you go. Yeehaa?
