On February 28, Manish Arora presented his autumn/ winter 2019/20 collection “Finally Normal People” at Paris Fashion Week. The Mad-Max bohemian collection delivered post-apocalyptic hippie-glamour.

On Thursday, Manish Arora part on a runway show that the brand’s press release described as featuring “a motley cru of Mad Max bohemians straight out of a dystopian future.”

The collection may have been inspired by Armageddon but it featured the designer’s signature optimistic perspective. Warrior-esque silhouettes were mixed with bright prints and fluorescent hues reminiscent of the 1970s and models wore Daniel Shaub face-masks as they walked the runway to a soundtrack of Tapan Raj’s Mldival Punditz.  

Key items in the collection included jewel-encrusted reflective visors, patchwork denim, capes, and layered sportswear pieces. Furry sweatshirts and sand-stained t-shirts featured slogans such as “What if this is all real”, “I am the one I have been waiting for”, and “Everything you need is inside you”. Evening wear gowns added elegance to the collection and were paired with dramatic headdresses to create a regal yet otherworldly impression.

The show featured hair by Laurent Philippon and makeup by Kabuki for the Mac Pro Team. Models were adorned with jewellery by Mercedes Salazar and Gilded and also wore headpieces by Who Cares Who Not, which also provided sunglasses, as well as Object and Dawn and Wu Creations. Nail art was done by Marian Newman for CND.
