Born in London and retailing across the globe, River Island has a long history supporting fashion talent. This season, visitors will be among the first to shop the exclusive River Island Design Forum x Ashish 15-piece collection in real life. In true Ashish style, the playful gender-fluid edit is as chic as it is tongue-in-cheek. Describing it as ‘something lazy and a bit dreamy’ Ashish delivers a real sense of humour with fridge-magnet alphabet slogan sweats and his signature glamour with sparkly slip dresses. River Island will also host a series of discussions under the ‘London Fashion Week Festival’ theme of ‘Positive Fashion’.
