'70s disco fashion on the runway

Last updated on: February 24, 2016 17:38 IST

Ashish Gupta's show at London Fashion Week 2016 was inspired by the colours of rainbow and a box of crayons he owned as a child! 

Afro wigs ruled the runway at Delhi-born designer Ashish Gupta's show in London. 

It was truly a celebration of colours.

Ashish termed it as a "rainbow fantasy extravaganza" on Instagram, and we can't disagree.

The designer had creatively used a singular shade for each of his creations, and how!

He took us down memory lane with some of the outfits including a glitzy raincoat, peddle-pushers -- yes, you heard it right -- maxis and mini-skirts thrown into the collection.

Scroll down to check out his latest collection.

A model shows some attitude in this satin peddle-pushers with bows adorned on each side and a daring sequinned jacket.

Bows and sequins...that's Ashish's style statement in a nutshell.

The off-shoulder sequinned dress saw a comeback on the runway along with trench coats.

Whoever thought that 'slips' were meant only for the bedroom. Look at the picture above!

The slip dress has been teamed to perfection with glittering stilettos and a wig that completed the playful look!

Shorts and full-sleeve tops don't make such a bad combination after all!

High-slit maxi gowns were part of the collection too.

This outfit takes us back to the 70s when denims were such a rage! 

What's interesting is that the models' lips and nails were painted in colour of the outfit with matching shoes and wigs.

You don't need lights when you have a pair of bright blue night clothes, do you?

Stepping out for a party? A glittering slip dress is all you need.

The show seemed like an ode to the disco era. Doesn't it?
