Celebrating Positive Fashion: ASHISH and Tamsin Blanchard

ASHISH and Tamsin Blanchard discuss identity, diversity and design in partnership with River Island

Ashish Gupta has the monopoly on sparkle. In the 12 years since he launched his eponymous brand, he has amassed a cult following for his sequin-smothered pieces that ooze look-at-me charm. The uplifting spectacle of his clothes has also found fans in Madonna and Katy Perry, for whom he has produced bespoke stage outfits for international tours. He reflects on a decade of tiny plastic discs and all-out vivacity in conversation with Tamsin Blanchard, exclusive to the London Fashion Week Festival audience.

The even better news? You’ll be able to purchase items from his latest 15-piece collaboration with River Island immediately after the talk. Created as part of the high-street store’s Design Forum initiative, the gender-neutral collection comprises sparkly tunics, T-shirts and loungewear emblazoned with fridge-magnet-letter-style slogans, pyjamas, and puffer coats inspired by sleeping bags.
