FASHION: London Fashion Week: Ashley Isham

When sleek feminine style meets masculine vogue, you know you are at Ashley Isham's show. At this year's London Fashion Week, the most spectacular exhibition at the Freemasons Hall by Ashley Isham's show was hugely popular and utterly delightful. The spellbinding atmosphere was incredibly special to the crowded room of fashion gurus and devoted style watchers. Never a dull moment with Ashley Isham, and AW17 proved to be most opulent. Full of bold colours, bold beautiful materials and pops of gold that give a delicious lux look.

With strong ties to his native Singapore, the eastern influence was beautifully inscribed into the entrancingly classy outfits, particularly within the velvets. Velvets have had longevity over the past couple of seasons, and the luxury of velvet still seems solidified wtihin the catwalks so far. The lace was a big trend for Ashley, and colour specifics, with blacks, reds and greys taking the headline. It subtly incorporated the Asian style with embellished tropical prints, large chunky hoop earrings, which were so large, they drew attention nicely to the upper half. It was drama mixed with extravagant but not in any self-indulgent way, but rather a clear point towards future fashion. It doesn't feel like it would be difficult to see the large heavy earrings making their way to the highstreet soon. The face masks were a highlight, the audience engaging so deeply, it was a definite unique highlight to the show.

The men's outfits were particularly intriguing, with a semblence of femininity, without diminishing the stern boldness of masculinity. There was no end for the patterned looks, even for the men, a refreshing look and utterly divine. The male scarf was another edgy look that seemed to look so effortless, and complement the outfits.
