Highlight Story

A cast of black-hooded graffiti artists set the scene as Indian designer Manish Arora showcased his autumn-winter collection at the ongoing Paris Fashion Week (February 28-March 7) on March 1. Brooklyn-based Judith Supine, spray-painted the words “Life is beautiful” on the backdrop of his ramp. “I’m very attracted to street art,” said Manish.

On the catwalk, motifs ranged from urban landscapes, to fragmented figures or faces, or bright red kissing lips dotted all over a black knee-length dress under a little black bolero. “For my world the colours were subdued,” he joked afterwards. “But it’s not just about the clothes. I fell in love with this venue. For me a show has to be a ‘show’,” Arora smiled. “Otherwise you can just go to a showroom.”
