MANISH ARORA
Runway Report
 

Even the most harried editors refer to a Manish Arora showing as one of the most magical experiences of fashion week. Arora is a designer with exceptional flair for the theatrical and his runway tableaux are likened to performance art.  So, when it was announced that his collection for Lakmé Fashion Week 'celebrates the extraordinary by saluting the spirit of the LGBTQAI tribe,' the fraternity and its followers couldn't wait to be witness what promised to be a spectacular show.

 

"It's going to be trippy" I thought. As anticipated and hoped for, 'We Are Family' By Manish Arora was a psychedelic multicultural romp. The live installations — eight models on moving pedestals — dressed in bold, glamorous ensembles accessorised with quirky head gear, dramatic footwear and wigs, evoked the energy of LGBTQAI+ legendary performers. All the while, on point with his signature style of couture with a streetstyle soul, employing traditional craft and techniques. As always, the excess looked magnificent as the models pouted, shimmied and sashayed, and guests stood, transfixed. Deconstructing the looks, I loved the artistic skinny jeans, printed pants, futuristic bodice, graphic sweaters, maxi skirts and dramatic gowns.Kudos to him for setting the bar ever higher!!
