London Fashion Week S/S 2012 Catwalk Review: Ashish

Paloma Faith was once more front row for the new Ashish S/S 2012 collection Le Jardin d'Ashish, a wonderful burst of sequinned flower power, styled to perfection by Celestine Cooney. Shown on Saturday 17th September 2011 at the BFC Tent.

There aren't many designers who make me so excited I can hardly breathe, but that tends to be a side effect of watching an Ashish catwalk show. Out they came, a stream of beautiful girls dressed in brightly coloured sequinned floral creations… except this being Ashish flowers were not staid or overly girly.
