At Manish Arora’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013, all eyes were on the jewelry and accessories.
The ready-to-wear collection was unique for two reasons: it was the first time that India was the central inspiration for a Manish Arora show in Paris, and Manish’s use of Indian jeweler, Amrapali, on the runway. And what jewelry it was was!
The special handcrafted jewelry had a regal yet playful flair, and brought Manish’s dresses, jackets and soft kurtas to life. Tigers contrasted with little pearls, tassels vs. spikes – these are accessories we would wear with Indian clothes and with a cocktail dress alike.
