Paris Fashion Week is here!……… Graffiti Bridge!March 3rd, 2012 by Hotel Fashionland received Comments Off
The Indian designer, Manish Arora explored a Brooklyn cityscape in which tiny floral brocades teeming with color peeped through cracks in brick-colored pencil skirts.
Short coats and stiff Aline skirts gleamed with a metallic finish, reminding us of the railroad tracks of Paris’ Austerlitz train station a stone’s throw away from the show.
Models in loose, flared graffiti dresses with sporty straps amused the crowd as they stopped mid-catwalk to camouflage with the painted backdrop, like urban chameleons.
A rich mix of materials were on display, including dyed Scandinavian Saga fur, crepe and silk satin.
But it was a shame that in many of the pieces the fabrics were colored and embroidered to near-death, diminishing their visual quality.
The show ended to a round of applause but also some coughs as the fumes from the freshly graffitied set wafted toward the front row.
