Manish Arora sent an autumn/winter 2013 collection down the Paris runway on Thursday inspired by the Burning Man festival in Nevada.
The designer transformed geometric shapes inspired by the psychedelic forms of the desert by using laser to dress up his glamorous and adventurous collection of pencil skirts, over-sized jackets, leather turbans, shoes covered in opulent jewels, and knitwear for the first time.
Peplum skirts, colors of sky blue, navy and green and fabrics of neoprene, cotton velvet and silk crepe rounded out the collection.
Whatever the theme, it still made a play on the designer's Indian roots with the magical fantasy of the collection and feminine glamor.
