The latest to sport a Manish Arora was singer Erykah Badu who wore a blue dress from the designer’s Spring 2009 ‘Circus’ collection. Most of you ask whether the pieces shown on runway are sold as is in stores. Here is an example of how a piece is toned down for retail wear. I must add that without the frills, the quirkiness that is so ‘Manish’ is partly lost. Especially in this piece.
Thanks ‘HighSnobette’ for the tip-off!
