The Silk Route’s Enduring Inspiration

Ashima-Leena WIFW AW 2014

Ashima-Leena’s collection inspiration is the tried and tested journey down the old silk route. I say this not to criticise but to emphasise that it remains fertile ground and has provided centuries of ideas to creatives.

Persian gardens and tribes were referenced in particular and fresh henna, peachy rose and gold were some of the delicious colour combinations. Silhouettes included a fresh take on a sari but the designers included their signature looks in the form of billowing chiffon dresses and skirts.

A beautiful and feminine collection.
