ashish a/w 2017
U GUYS!!!!!! so i'm going through the lfw shows so i can put together a lfw post like i did with nyfw, & i am absolutely falling in LOVE with ashish gupta's collection!!! so much that i have to make it its own post, like, immediately!!! so much excitement!!! so many exclamation points!!!!!!
it's no surprise that i am hella feeling the rainbows & sequins, but when his positive messages ("be gentle and kind") & references to the political shit show here in the US ("pussy grabs back") started walking down the runway, i swooned!!! multi-colored, sparkling, & optimistic/woke AF?!?! that's my kind of combination.
people criticize this industry for being materialistic, vapid, & trivial. i disagree. there is so much power in what u wear. u can truly express yourself, including your stance on the world & its events. & u can don it in colorful sequins if u want!!!
don't give up the daydream <3
