Manish Arora’s Spring / Summer 2017 collection at Paris Fashion Week presented his marine-inspired styles on models strutting down the runway in trainer-wedges. They showcased Arora’s technicolour collection in berets, stripes, neons, masks and bow ties. Manish featured models of different diversities, a range of body shapes and drag queens – all with jovial expressions. The shades of colours grew from softer ivory and teal hues to bolder blues, reds and greens. Uniquely, he used eggs, cherries, flamingos and parrots, to name a few, to bring life to the vibrant, explosive collection. Clearly, this is a collection to put a smile on your face.
