MANISH ARORA – PARIS F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Indian fashion designer Manish Arora presented a Fall 2012 collection influenced by the “surreal and deconstructed iconography” of Brooklyn street artist Judith Supine. Arora created prints that melded fluid drawings of faces and bodies in neon prints, using them on his jackets, dresses, and skirts. Other looks in the collection were a humorous nod to the vibrant neon designs of pinball machines. The models walked down the runway in front of a brick wall being spray-painted by none other than Parisian street artists Rude, Vizion, and Broke. Apart from the dramatic patterns, the pieces have a 1950s feel with very full skirts, cropped, structured jackets, and nipped waists. The show was vibrant and unique, with Manish once again taking Paris by storm with his creativity and stunning collection.
