RUNWAY: MANISH ARORA S/S 2013

For Spring/Summer 2013, Manish Arora went back to his roots to pay a tribute to India. The country's rich artistic legacy of ornamentation continues to inspire the world, with its vibrant colours, decorative arts, intricate architecture and unique handicrafts. Indian jewelry remains the most prominent in the subcontinent's vast constellation of artisan traditions. Manish has exhibited the legacy of ornamentation in India through this collection that take on both modern and traditional forms.

The collection is an impeccable blend of India's true essence and Manish's vision of experiments in contemporary art and fashion. He takes inspiration from the myriad aesthetic layers of India - from its opulent embroideries to its intricate craftsmanship in architecture and ornamentation. He incorporates homage to nature often found in Indian jewelry.


Breaking new ground in the fashion world, Manish has reinterpreted traditional Indian silhouettes through a modern lens. The collection has a series of prints - a combination of Indian jewelry and ornate panthers, tigers and gazelles. The animal prints have geometric shapes and the jewelry prints have floral falls - another cutting edge design concept from Manish Arora.
