We have decided to create a segment on our blog entitled 'Designer Spotlight', in which we shift our focus towards a designer every now and again, taking inspiration from their various shows and trends.
Manish Arora is an Indian fashion designer who, in 2012, left the fashion house of Paco Robanne and now focuses on his own line.
With the fusion of Western culture and Eastern textures, embellishments and prints, Arora creates stunning and out-going pieces which have been worn by Nicki Minaj and Katie Perry. Although very outgoing, we love his psychedelic prints and the combination of urban styles, adorned with an array of shiny materials. Think a cross between Willy Wonka and Alexander McQueen with a hint of Balmain - he's known as the 'John Galliano of India' after all...
