Manish Arora showcased his Fall-Winter 2013 Collection that he showed at the Paris Fashion Week on 28th February at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week F/W 2013 Grand Finale too. The set at the finale show was grander, the models were from India and some amazing Trance music played on Live. Sonam Kapoor was their in the audience dressed in a Manish Arora saree.
Designer Manish Arora showcased his Ready-To-Wear (RTW) Fall-Winter 2013 collection at the Paris Fashion Week on 28th February and yes, the collection was typical ‘Manish Arora’. However I felt that he cramped in too many stories or fashion elements in his 45-pieces collection.
There were multiple looks cramped in: one emphasizing psychedelic geometric digital prints, second one that hewed to the very Indian colors of pink and yellow and featured Deco black crystal embroidery, and then a sedate look in textural navy and black that Arora had decorated with various kinds of jewel-like embellishment.
In addition to that, there was a knitwear category, a first time use of knits by Manish that had navy Lurex pieces worn with piles of gold jewelry. The textural black and navy looks were probably the best part of Manish Arora’s Fall 2013 collection. The trim skirts and tops with multicolor stones were nice too.
By the way Manish Arora’s Fall-Winter 2013 RTW collection was inspired by the Burning Man festival in Nevada.
Fashionscandal was the first to break the news of Manish Arora being appointed as the Creative director of Paco Rabanne. We published this as early as 22nd December 2010. Here is the link to that post:
Many rubbished the news but I stuck to it as it was TRUE. Truth wins and Fashionscandal is all about the TRUTH!
Manish Arora will showcase his first collection as the Paco Rabanne Creative Director during the Spring-Summer 2012 of Paris Fashion Week to be held in October 2011. Manish now virtually lives out of Paris and has quaint and cozy pad in the heart of Paris. Way to go Manish. You do us PROUD!
The boards on the featured garments were upholstered in androgynous looks of boyfriend blazers and menswear pants. Looks like the designer is trying to tell us that straight lines and strong shoulders are the in-look for the coming seasons. Check out these boxy models catwalk down the runway.
Paris Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2011 opened with outrageous designs. Boldness was in the air at ready-to-wear shows on Thursday, as designers here delivered over-the-top looks with Manish Arora taking the lead with his ‘Beach Baroque’ look.
The collection was Lady Gaga(ish) with sculpted cocktail dresses dripped in sequins, rhinestones and huge gold appliqués. In fact Gold was everywhere, in scales and twists that defined ankles, bulked out shoulders, circled necks or the small of the back, creating reptilian body armour, like shoulder-to-wrist armbands of spiked gold as worn by women of Rajasthan.
