Fashion in Motion: Manish Arora

View transcript of video

September 2007

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Manish Arora is known for his vivid palette of riotous colours and kitsch motifs. His garments combine contemporary silhouettes with a range of traditional Indian craft methods including embroidery, appliqué and beading.

Having studied at the National Insitute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi, Manish Arora set up his eponymous label in 1997. In 2005, having exhibited and shown his work extensively both in India and internationally, he joined the schedule at London Fashion Week.

Manish was selected to show at Paris Fashion Week for the Autumn/Winter 2007-08 season. As such he wished his V&A Fashion In Motion event to be a celebration of his time in London with a retrospective of the spectacular pieces he had shown whilst in this city.
