India on the Catwalk

India on the Catwalk

He is known for a rich palette of psychedelic colours and kitsch motifs in garments combining India and the West. With creations worn by stars like Lady Gaga, he now also claims international acknowledgement.

In India on the Catwalk Arora takes the audience back to where is all began, telling the personal story about his rise to fame in the international scene of fashion – from the almost accidental application to the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi, the first creation to the studio and clothing company in Paris with hundreds of employees. A place where his ideas and everything melts together in colourful culture, art, design and fashion.

But while he is praised on the international stage of fashion, locally he is a controversial character claiming fashion designers to be ladies tailors.
