Indian designers Manish Arora, Ashish Soni, Ana-mika strutted their stuff on London’s ramp this week. Manish Arora’s designs evoked a favorable reaction from British Vogue. "Stiff dirndl skirts embroidered with Indian gods, reindeer, Christmas scenes and – the finale – London landmarks including Big Ben, bearskin helmets, red phone boxes and tube signs written in Hindi script, were as amusing as they were multicultural. "
I am Fashion concludes Arora’s outfits as definitely wearable while Rivka, an Indian fashion designer, thinks that Manish Arora played the India-card (colorful Indian motifs, the works) but is thrilled that Indian designers are getting international recognition.
