For AW09, fashion designer Manish Arora created a fantasy world of mythical creatures. Using Crystallized Swarovski Elements, Manish brought his dreamy universe to live replete with four legged birds and leopard butterflies.The silhouettes range from cropped and knee length jackets, form fitting dresses, square back tops, belted high waist trousers, waist coats as well as pegged and sharp pencil skirts. Symmetrical shapes and geometric forms are predominant features of the collection.

Collaborating with Crystallized-Swarovski Elements for the fifth time, the textures are achieved with innovative techniques that integrate Swarovski Elements with hand-cut square embroidery, intricate appliqué as well as rich surface details using hand embroidery three-dimensional motifs.

Manish Arora graduated from the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi in 1994 where he won the ‘Most Creative Student’ award for his final collection. Having declined an offer from French Vogue as a stylist, the label Manish Arora was launched in 1997. Manish Arora has been showing on schedule at London Fashion Week from SS06, and Manish became the first Indian designer to be invited to show in Paris Fashion Week in October 2007.
