Manish Arora has skillfully blended street style and urban ladscapes to sculpt silhouettes in a collection full of contrasts. Appropriately, Fall Winter 2012's mise-en-scène was in an industrial open-air space on the river where a hoodie-clad crew—Parisian graffiti artists Rude, Vizion, and Broke—spray-painted the backdrop as models walked on by. Arora has drawn on the surreal and deconstructed iconography of Brooklyn-based street artist, Judith Supine, melding fragmented figures and faces in luminescent shades with fluid prints.

The collection's foundation lies in the meticulous experimentation of techniques and handiwork, with an opulent and luxurious finish in a reminiscent and demure 1950's silhouettes adorned with street art. Lacer-cut etched suede and leather are handcrafted into creepers, leaves, feathers and flowers that embellish the garment in an innovative way to complete the collection.

The urban theme was built-on through a denim range featuring jeans and distressed black leather, a touch more reality: Arora's continuing collaboration with Notify Jeans.

The color palette from blacks to emerald greens, deep purples and sapphire blues, brick reds, fuchsia pinks, and psychedelic neons to highlight the prints and patterns. The collection incorporates a rich mix of fabrics such as silk, velvet, suede, leather, satin, crêpe and beautiful Scandinavian saga furs.

 For his grand finale, a parade of ten models in crinoline-puffed graffiti-print dresses marched out to pose in front of the freshly sprayed-on work of art, which read "Life Is Beautiful." In Arora's world, it's fun too.
