Cowboy boots painted with Coca-Cola bottles, portions of McDonald’s French fries, horseshoes and cactuses, anyone? Whatever would you wear them with, I hear you ask. Why, maxi dresses embellished in leopard-spot sequins, or sequined Western shirts partnered with miniskirts in cowhide, patterned with black and white sequins, of course.

Yes, sirree, you can team anything with these eclectic pieces, as long as it’s sequined – or tasselled, for that matter. In case you missed it (the Stetsons and feathered headpieces provided further clues), Ashish went all-out rodeo this season, and it was pure dress-up fantasy and a whole lot of thigh-slapping fun.

Admittedly, there was some respite from all that dazzle; namely in the shape of covetable faded jeans and denim hot pants with tan-suede tassels swinging from seams and back pockets, and a grey marl tracksuit decorated in a paisley print, which was repeated on bandanas jauntily tied around the neck. The only thing missing from this scene? A horse.
