Designer Spotlight: Manish Arora

Manish Arora is an Indian designer whose work popped up on my Pinterest feed. It blew me away and sent me down a rabbit hole. I just had to share his garments with you.

They’re pantsuits and they’re just as elegant and sophisticated as their traditional counterparts.
