It’s definitely a proud moment for Indian fashion and Manish Arora specifically. JC Report, one of most prestigious international websites on fashion comes out with a list of Top Ten designers at Paris Fashion Week (PFW) every season. And the list for the Spring/Summer 2010 collections showed by designers at PFW includes Manish Arora.
Says the site’s spokesperson, “The showings in Paris Fashion Week have become diverse and PFW is increasingly defined by its variety than by any dominant trend. Manish Arora adds that diversity to Paris Fashion Week.” JC Report’s Top Ten has Givenchy, Balmain, Gareth Pugh, AF Vandevorst, Viktor & Rolf, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Manish Arora and Celine. Rubbing shoulders with such heavy-weights is no mean feat. Arora is definitely ecstatic about it and says, “Givenchy, Balmain, Balenciaga are the names that I studied about in fashion. Getting featured amongst them and stalwarts like McQueen, Viktor & Rolf and Pugh is very encouraging.”
JC Report writes, “Like Gareth Pugh, Manish Arora is slowly peeling back the fruit of all his creativity one season at a time. This collection showed that Arora can do a variety of inventive and sexy cocktail dresses, slowing down his usual space age creations to bring his printed drama to saleable sportswear pieces. All the Arora signatures were there: the serious slatter of Swarovski crystals, rich appliqués so expertly executed that they look like prints and a bit of play with exoskeleton.”
