Ashish Gupta, the British designer of Indian origin pulled tricks out of his ’80s closet with epaulets and animal prints prancing among some rose embellishments. Meadham Kirchoff chose to keep the silhouettes simple and focus on dressing them up with cutouts. High octane prints were back with a bang.
