Crouching Tigers & Leopard Prints @ Manish Arora’s S/S2013 Show in Paris

Manish Arora went brazenly ‘Indian’ with his Spring/Summer 2013 collection on the opening day of Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013. The collection had mostly Indian silhouettes – like the churidaar-kurtas, Kutch jackets and sherwani style jackets – tweeked to appeal to the western audience. Manish predominantly used season’s favourite pastels and metallics, the kaleidoscopic prints in which tigers crouched; there were sheer leggings in churidaar style and foil leopard prints and heavily beaded dresses.

As always Manish Arora used loads of jewelry in gold and some chunky pieces in neon.

Typically 3-D embroidery that has become signature ‘Manish Arora’ and some very traditional motifs embellished the garments that can be best described as ‘Exotic Indian’.

    The John Galliano of India is truly a very great Indian designer, his store “Fish Fry” is very fresh & striking

    His name is familiar with Fashion Week from a long time now, too many awards to his credit.

    I like his work more than other famous Manish Malhotra & Rhina Dhaka.

    super fresh collection……he pushes the edge just a tad each time… MM and the likes should do an unpaid internship with Arora..to start thinking like a designer and producing work that inspires rather than churn out blinged out garbage.
