Manish Arora splashes color all over Paris Fashion Week. The Indian designer unveiled his Fall-Winter collection inspired by a recent trip to the Burning Man festival in the U.S. state of Nevada. SOUNDBITE: Manish Arora, designer, saying (English): "The first thing when I came back that I remembered was the amazing blue sky with white clouds and the empty desert. And that's how I started the collection. And it went on into the evening and there were clouds with neon signs and then it went on to only the neon lights." Demure sky blue dresses gave way to vivid patterns in bright colors. Models wore black leather turbans as they strutted down the runway to music played on traditional Indian instruments. Arora says he wanted the audience to remember where he came from. SOUNDBITE: Manish Arora, designer, saying (English): "Last season is when I started saying 'OK, it's time to say I'm Indian.' And I did a collection which was totally inspired by India. And I realized that I should keep on (with) that because earlier I was using India but for let's say for its technical details like embroidery etc. etc. but I thought now it's time to tell people visually that I'm Indian." Paris Fashion Week continues until Wednesday, March 6th.
