What can you say about Manish Arora and his designs? His work is so playful, colourful and vibrant it’s difficult to put into words what he displays through his Bollywood-tastic creations. Favoured by celebs including Katie Perry, Beth Ditto, Rihanna, and Paloma Faith, Manish Arora’s designs are for confident, colourful fashion forward divas! His collections often include mind-blowing pieces suited for these gorgeous songstresses on stage and on the red carpet, but also include statement pieces that can be diluted to create a more wearable look for us mere mortals!
Psychedelic colours and prints were the main trend in Manish’s AW2010 collection, ranging from stripes, geometric, cosmic, feathers and flowers. The collection had a 1920s feel, from the flapper wigs in primary and neon shades to the dropped waists and plunging necklines. Sequins, embellishment and sculptured shapes have become even more prominent since his SS2010 collection, with huge shoulders, built up hips and oversized silhouettes and every inch of fabric covered in sequins and sparkle, creating a Space Invader Bollywood Flapper look that has Manish Arora written all over it!Images: Style.com
