Designer Manish Arora shows Indo-western collection in US
Nov '13
Exclusively.in, the world’s leading online retailer for Indian fashion, presented INDIAN by Manish Arora collection on the catwalk with the first-ever viewing of the collection seen in the U.S. that was presented by acclaimed designer Manish Arora himself. The debut of the collection celebrates the launch of Manish Arora’s online store.

Known for a rich palette of psychedelic colours and kitsch motifs in garments that combine traditional Indian crafts like embroidery, appliqué and beading with Western silhouettes, Arora’s clothing graced the runway at the Indo-American Arts Council’s 15th Anniversary Gala, taking place on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 6 p.m. onwards at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Performing Arts (172 Norfolk Street on the Lower East Side). 

Arora’s “Holi Holy” film premiered in New York at the IAAC’s 15th Anniversary Gala. The film celebrates widows from Varanasi, the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism and Jainism through holi color and a vivid, eye-catching collection.

“Showcasing Manish’s incredible Indo-Western collection at the same venue where Lady Gaga did her Vogue photo shoot and ‘Sex and the City’ star Sarah Jessica-Parker married Matthew Broderick is rather befitting,” said Exclusively.in CEO Sunjay Guleria. “Manish is synonymous with haute couture, and we are so proud to be celebrating his line with the Indo American Arts Council’s loyal and sophisticated audience on the monumental occasion of its 15th anniversary.”

‘INDIAN by Manish Arora’ is a contemporary Indian wear collection for a modern women inspired by Manish’s colorful and vibrant world using traditional Indian craftsmanship for weaving, embroideries and  embellishments. The collection also incorporates the state of the art printing, pattern making, stitching and finishing machine to create a beautiful, premium and fashion-forward clothing line.

Speaking on this important milestone, Manish Arora says, “It feels great to debut my INDIAN collection in New York City as we launch my website! New York is such a fun, hip and fast city. There’s no other place that screams accessibility than the Big Apple and we’re excited to keep the buzz going! With launch of my very own website, clients can now buy my latest collections and collaborations from anywhere. This partnership with Exclusively.in pushes us right to the top of the online, mobile and social media world.”

To execute his creative vision for his show in New York, Manish teamed his trusted stylist and reputed Indian fashion choreographer Harmeet Bajaj with Aushim Raswant, Executive Producer and Creative Director of rapidly rising New York based fashion production and casting house 3V Creative.  3V assembled beauty talents Linh Nguyen for Cutler Salon for hair, and Rashida Bolden for Color My Face, Sponsored by Alcone at Home for makeup to complete Manish's dynamic look.
