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.
