Amidst the backdrop of glittering disco balls and flashing lights Ashish unveiled his Spring 2018 collection. The show itself was infused with an overwhelming sense of gloom, which stalked beautiful barefoot alt-fabulous denizens of the dark. This season, there was a clear shift away from the bright colors and happy slogans that helped to solidify Ashish in the fashion arena.

“In my head, it’s just this mood I’ve been in for the last couple of months, a dark place. And I don’t want to fight it and do something that I’m not feeling—I might as well just use it and treat it as a catharsis. I thought I would do a celestial, ethereal, and sad collection that is mourning something, but it’s also hope, it’s new things, it’s starting again,” the designer recalled. Despite forgoing color this season, Ashish still managed to create a spellbinding collection that wove a beautiful dark story on the runway.
