Born: 1973 in New Delhi
Ashish Gupta made his London Fashion Week debut in 2004 with a unique collection of sportswear and designs which fused the cultures of West and East.
Although both his parents are doctors, Ashish's interest lay in fashion. He studied at Middlesex College and Central St Martins, from which he graduated in 2000. Plans to break into the industry by joining a Paris design studio were almost dashed, however, when his entire portfolio was stolen, along with his cash.
A year later he was designing clothes for friends when Browns Focus buyer Yeda Yun offered him his first commission. Since then he's created looks for Tori Amos' world tour and collaborated with Topshop on an ‘Ashish for Topshop’ line.
Ashish's client list includes Victoria Beckham and Madonna.
