Vibrant prints, embellished sequins, feather details and oriental styles were aplenty at Manish Arora's Spring/Summer '18 collection. Bright as it is bold, the collection sees achingly cool modest cuts – think printed kaftans, long silk robes, shift dresses – complete with the designer's ethnic-like aesthetic. Noor Fares provided the must-have accessories. See the full looks now...

His heart is always on his sleeve, no more so than in this season's "ready to love" collection. This Spring/Summer 18 Manish Arora envisioned mornings made magical with rainbows and far away dream lands. Musing over Sleeping Beauty, each design, which was dripping in detail grazed the floor and stopped short enough to show off the must-have fur-trimmed mules. During her dreams the Arora goddess visits Arabia, where she encounters a palette of prints mostly mosaic — a trend also seen at Dior — before awakening in the Aztec, India, Ibiza and ending with inspiration from Burning Man.

To complete each look, Arora's muse Noor Fares, who sat front row at the show, created achingly cool accessories to finish each story. Discover the Manish Arora SS18 collection show now...
