When Manish Arora’s One-Year agreement with Paco Rabanne as the Artistic Director of the label’s Women’s RTW ended few months back, the Desi Media went all about town scripting Arora’s return to India. Manish Arora did deny any such plan. He is rather busy in Paris.
Last Friday (15th June) Manish Arora was an integral part of Super 8. The curatorial fashion project – Super 8 - was started by fashion consultant Rafael Jimenez in 2011. It is an innovative platform focused on the diffusion of fashion and its many subcultures. Last year during Paris Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2012 Super 8 screened the first of a series of filmed interviews with key people of the industry.
In the second Super 8 event held at an atelier in Paris where décor of dresses and graffiti backdrops by Manish Arora – echoing his last surrealistic, street art inspired collection – interviews of 8 fashion figures were screened. Those included of Manish Arora, Maria Luisa, founder of eponymous boutique Maria Luisa, designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard, Romain Brau of RA and Armand Hadida of L’Eclaireur.
