Paco Rabanne & Manish Arora Part Ways

After showing his second collection for Paco Rabanne at Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Week, Manish Arora leaves the role of Artistic Director yesterday, May 4, as announced by the  Couture House in a press release in the morning that put an end to a year-long partnership with the Indian designer by mutual agreement.

A graduate of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in New Delhi, India, Manish Arora also has an eponymous label and took the design reins at Paco Rabanne in 2011, re-starting activity which had ceased with the departure of original designer Paco Rabanne in 1999. This latest news marks a new turning point for the French couture house, which has yet to announce Manish Arora‘s successor.
