Mannish Arora SS2020 @PFW

I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Mannish Arora show in Paris and although the wait to get into show was long and a bit chaotic it was well worth it. Held in the infamous Hall of Mirrors located in the Passage Jouffroy it was quite the Parisian experience; and one could sense the by gone era of lavish nightlife. No throbbing runway music though, but rather, performer Luc Bruyere greeted invitees, crooning seductively wearing head to toe Mannish Arora. Models stood elevated circularly around the perimeters of the room bathed in purple, pink and golden lights.

A kaleidoscope of kitsch as seen through the lens of rose colored glasses in a joyful romp of exquisite artistry; could not only describe the SS2020 collection but the Manish Arora brand as a whole. With a love of unapologetic color, the intricacies of folk art, a bold silhouette, and regal adornment the Manish Arora aesthetic is an unabashedly beautiful expression of the jubilant art of garment creation.

    So crazy and what a colorful dream! As you said, it is a kaleidoscope of kitsch and everything is so vibrant that I don’t know where to look at first ahaha. Not only the clothes are stunning but also the make up and all the details to embrace the personality of the brand!
