fall prêt-à-porter, paris: manish arora
by Jeremy Danté
bold colors & outlandish style are concepts presented by manish arora for the FW11 show season at paris fashion week. as seen on rapper nicki minaj at the american music awards, arora is of indian nationality & is based in new delhi. as the creative director of pacco rabane, arora has been referred to as ‘the john galliano of india’ – anti-semetic remarks aside, it’s more of a creative reference. imaginative, outrageous & thoughtfully developed looks were seen & highlighted through use of metallics, bold tones & lavish print was seen in this stunning set. i was very impressed by how stylishly all of the elements came together with this collection; thus far in paris, this is the most exciting collection i’ve seen. silhouettes were magnified, prints expoloded & still no bit of style was spared. a beautiful collection of true creative artistry. this is next level fashion design.
