It's always a show on Ashley Isham's catwalk and the presentation of his Autumn/winter 2016 collection was no less magnificent than the Fashion Thirst team have come to expect.
Finding inspiration in young Russian artist Igor Skaletsky, Isham surprised and fascinated us with a vivid mix of golds and glitter this season. Although his models did not take on the usual playful aura that we've come to love Isham for - his previous shows have opened with a dance performance and seen models flirt their way down the runway - the display was certainly no less spectacular.
Skaletsky's thought provoking paints and textural collages inspired Ashley because of the way he combines religion, animals, pop culture and taboo images. And just like the work of the Russian artist, it is hard - if not impossible - to remain indifferent to Isham's creations.
Isham's use of beautiful materials, combined with sharp tailoring and masculine elements, make women of all backgrounds want to wear his designs. Embodying drama in the most feminist way, the colour palette for AW16 consists of deep, dark and romantic hues of teal, maroon, olive and magenta perfect for the urban Isham girl.
