If you think strutting down a catwalk in skyscraper heels is hard enough spare a thought for the models in Ashish’s LFW show, who had to swap their stilettos for skateboards.
The Delhi-born designer, who’s known for his love of slogans and sequins, is also partial to a spot of boarding it seems. On the final day of LFW some of his models showcased his SS16 collection on skateboards.
Before the show the models looked pretty happy about their unique accessories/mode of transport:

“A skateboard is the new handbag” announced Vogue.co.uk in the wake of Ashish’s show. We’re not so sure — it’s not the most practical accessory when you’re out and about doing your usual daily errands. (Although it could be pretty useful if you need to get somewhere in a hurry, provided you’ve had a few lessons first.)
The skateboards were cool but even they didn’t take away from the outfits: typical Ashish with sparkly tutus, sequins everywhere and garments emblazoned with “shut up, shut up.”
