Ever since the first time I stepped foot in India I had a deep connection with the rich culture. The beautiful colors and patterns are mesmerizing. I guess that is why I am all over New Delhi based designer Manish Arora‘s  SS 2015 collection where he draws inspiration from his  indian heritage but in a modern way. At Paris Fashion week this Spring 2015 collection shined full of pearlescent and iridescent embellishments, layers of gauze and sheer paneling of patterns and textures.  The mix of colors, the layering of the roses and intricate patterns, it’s all a beautiful indian fantasy.  Maybe in the show they are styled for a pop star, with the head to toe look of outrageous hats and platform metallic gladiators, but styling your own piece, even just one item or an entire outfit is a dreamy sort of  statement.
