Ashish Gupta has been showing at London Fashion Week since 2004. He has won the Topshop New Generation award three times. Born in New Delhi, India, the son of two doctors, he studied Fine Art before moving to London, where he completed an MA in fashion design at Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design. His plans to work in a Paris design studio were foiled when a bag containing his entire portfolio of work was stolen at the Gare du Nord. He quietly began making clothes for friends until being spotted by Yeda Yun, then of Browns Focus in London, who gave him his first order in 2001.
Ashish exuberantly mixes sportswear, high octane glamour and breathtaking craftsmanship - beautiful, handcrafted pieces are all manufactured in-house at his workshop in India. He has cultivated quite a celebrity following, all of whom are devoted fans of his signature sequin pieces: Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Debbie Harry, Lily Allen, Madonna, and M.I.A to name a few.
