Designer Manish Arora is spreading his footprints globally. Lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret, for one of its most extravagant shows, which was held in New York on November 19, had a few pieces from his creations for Swarovski.
“In 2008, I did a show for Swarovski called Crystallised Swarovski Elements - Runway Rocks. That collection is now a Swarovski property and is stocked in their London archives. Victoria’s Secret (VS) picked up few pieces from that collection to accessorise their lingerie,” said Arora. How does it feel to be in a VS Show? “Oh, it’s like being featured in a blockbuster. It can’t get bigger than this in hype,” said an ecstatic Arora.
The VS show had several interesting themes and Arora’s sci-fi punk-rock spikes and naïf pink hearts ‘touched the angels’ who were decked in rhinestone, glitter and wings. “It’s a matter of pride that the VS team picked up only Manish from a horde of other global designers stocked in our archives,” said Sanjay Sharma, India head of Crystallised Swarovski Elements.
