MANISH ARORA Show-Women's Collection Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interview)

Designer: Manish AroraInspiration: this season, the Indian designer delivers a personal collection, in adapting his perception, his emotions. For 2018, he speaks of Japanese meditation and Buddhism and carries us off to a show full of embroidery and as always, incredible colour. Collection: Uniforms re-imagined by the designer, with ‘carrot’ style trousers, tightened at the ankles and kimonos transformed into coats, all made from Japanese silks. Faded denim completes motifs. The prints alone reflect a history, from symbolic fish which almost become camouflage with an all over look, to hearts. Sweaters and jackets appear in shades of tie-dye and touches of gold for a spiritual aspect. Without forgetting the huge puffer scarves in different jacquards created by hand by an artisan in Delhi, and the Japanese shoes transformed into sandals. Interview: Spiritual, personal experiences, a personal journey, a Japanese influence, a lot of detail of course which is my work and I wanted a pink Zen, and that’s what I’ve started to do. My clothes are a direct extension of my personality, I always express what I’m going through. My clothes I would say are almost like art, it’s just that I know fashion so I use fashion as a medium. But it’s an expression of what’s in my mind. Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
