To be honest, I wasn’t really planning on doing much (if any) show reports from LFW this year. However the last show of the season really blew me away and I just HAD to show you guys it. Ashish has been never normal. Think Glitter, sparkles and all things bling. This year was more of the same. He’s the king of sparkle and all things a little tongue in cheek and bling.
Sharon Dowsett created the Ashish SS15 look - a crazy bejewelled “drag without the drag” style look. Sharon said despite the fact it looks a bit OTT it was actually easy to do! Prepped with Maybelline Diamond Quad for that coral base and then enchanted with glitter and crystals for a creative and crazy take.
The nails were by Michelle Humphrey and described them as a “Cosmic Cluster”. Two coats of Maybelline Colour Show in Watery Waste and two of Glitter it for a extra holographic silver and then topped with a rainbow of pastel toned gems around the cuticle. Michelle was up till 3am creating the nails and her hard work really did pay off! They were wonderful!
The hair was by L’Oreal and was a disco ball party dream. Multicoloured tinsel wefts were threaded through the models hair to create a slick disco hair do. The hair was kept super straight and sleek but with a sheen and glossiness to it that gave lived in feel. I thought it was so cool and creative and unlike the airy fairy boho princess hair that's been the thing this year at LFW.
In all as per usual Ashish is not the most wearable look you’ll see at Fashion Week but it’s always a visual treat and a chance for MUA’s, Hairstylists and Nail Tech’s to go wild and try something a bit different and new. Sometimes it’s fun to just to be fun!
