World of futuristic fashion
Giving a rare glimpse of how far the Indian fashion industry has travelled in this quarter of a century, Ashish Soni celebrated his 25 years in the industry at an intimate evening on December 16 at The Lodhi, New Delhi. Titled, "Welcome to my World", the evening saw Ashish deliver unique insights into the designer's world of design and his personal fashion signature.
On display were a compilation of the designer's popular runway shows which helped in popularising the brand to its name today, there were also three focused exhibits revolving around Ashish's personal favourites from his creations over the years. Another interesting aspect of the evening was the documentary film about Ashish's journey in the industry and also a futuristic interactive audiovisual presentation powered by artificial intelligence.
Ashish's friends and family from the industry were present to mark this huge milestone with him and were seen celebrating with him. Some of the guests were JJ Valaya, Rohit Bal, Suneet Varma, Nikhil Mehra, Rajesh Pratap, Payal Pratap, Vikram Chandra, Yuvraj Singh, Renuka Chowdhury, Robert Vadra, and Bindu Vadera to name a few.
Taking inspiration from the technologically driven dynamic world that we live in, Ashish has approached this presentation of his world as futuristic as possible yet at the same time maintaining strong key sensibilities of the brand.
"'Welcome to My World' is an effort to take stock of the immense body of work and the present, past achievements. As a special twist, it merges my creative inner world with future technologies," said the designer.
