Manish Arora shows collection in Paris featuring emoji Tuzki
Manish Arora has become the first Indian designer to show for ten years straight at Paris Fashion Week and, for his autumn/winter collection, celebrated a popular Chinese emoji called Tuzki. The emoji Tuzki appeared on a variety of garments including sweatshirts and was rendered in sequins among other mediums.
"It feels great to partner with an iconic brand like Tuzki,” said Arora after the show. “This unique collection was inspired by this special rabbit. He personifies a composed, relaxed yet a cool lifestyle, one that is similar to mine.”
A human size Tuzki also appeared at the runway show and scarves were also emblazoned with the character.
"The collection is a story of Tuzki's day in Paris where he is seen meditating below the Eiffel tower, chilling in his room with a glass of wine and watching nature from the window, highlighting the fascinating character that he is,” said Arora. “Being a Tuzki fan, it's a pleasure to be a part of his world now, in my own way.”
Arora’s collection also features lotus motifs and Japanese style patterns in a mix of light blue and pink. Cloud prints, geometric prints, and leaf prints mixed east with west as denim mixed with cotton and 3D scarves. Models sported Japanese inspired buns and Geisha-esque white face paint and patterned socks were paired with bright platforms.
As Arora celebrates ten years in Paris, the designer has just opened a second Indian studio at Dhan Mill compound where he is showcasing archive designs. Arora also recently participated in St+Art India.
