Manish Arora goes truly Indian for Paris show
Manish Arora is ready to showcase his creations to global fashionistas at the Paris Fashion Week Sep 27, and says he has for the first time prepared a truly Indian-inspired collection for the international market. "The idea this time for my show is inspired by Indian jewellery," Arora, known for his quirky, innovative and colourful designs, told IANS. "Actually I thought about it and it struck me that I haven't really used a traditionally Indian theme ever in any of my international shows. The collection which I am doing this time is very new.
"I never took traditional Indian jewellery before. Yes, I took the beads, different kinds of embroideries, but they were always done in a way that was visually very global. I thought it was tim to show people the Indian silhouettes and I hope that people would wear them next summer globally," said the designer, among the few who have a large international appeal. For his show, which will be sponsored by real estate firm AMR Group, he has collaborated with jewellery brand Amrapali.
