Ashish SS17

London Fashion Week

Announcement: Trackies aren’t just for chavs anymore. Delhi-born London designer Ashish Gupta proved this with his SS17 collection, by fusing them (and other British working-class clothing staples) together with saris, salwars, churidars, lungis, and sherwanis - nods to his Indian heritage - to create a collection for the runway that is just as much Old Bollywood as it is Present-Day UK.

In fact, by combining traditional Indian garments with popular British sportswear, Gupta was able to create something all together new: a cohesive collection, whose strengths are born out of it's successful juxtaposition between two different worlds. It is clear to see which pieces from the collection were inspired by the east and which pieces from the west, and yet when combined, a T-Shirt reminiscent of a football jersey and a skirt reminiscent of something a Bollywood actress would wear combine to create a harmony that feels modern, natural, and balanced. Gupta's fusion of these two worlds have resulted in casual yet whimsical genderless garments.

But this unity goes beyond fabrics and textures. This unity is a manifestation of modern Britain: a melting pot of different cultures that has given rise to a new - and beautiful - face of Britain. Sadly, the vote on Brexit and the actions of certain individuals in Britain have proven that not all share the sentiment that melding cultures can be something beautiful and revolutionary.

Still we can be happy that designers out there, like Gupta, are fighting for political change while also creating something new and beautiful that propel us forward rather than hold us back. In addition to closing the show while wearing a T-shirt that read Immigrant, Gupta had this to say: “I know people who have been abused recently. It’s very upsetting. You know, when Brexit happened, it was the first time in 20 years I felt that maybe I am unwelcome in the country I consider my home. […] Tonight I wanted to celebrate Indian culture, because it is also such an integral part of British culture.” (Vogue)
