After just two seasons as the Creative Director of Paris-Based Fashion House, Paco Rabanne, Manish Arora has left the building. The word on the street is that this was a mutual decision, where Rabanne stated that Arora brought the label back to life after a 5-year hiatus. With his keen sense of high fashion and his modern eye, Arora created two fantastic seasons worn by celebs like Lady Gaga and J.Lo. And in an industry that shows no mercy, his collections even created positive buzz and received great reviews.
According to WWD, it seems that the departure was peaceful as Arora said, “Revisiting the Paco Rabanne fashion was a very enriching experience and an exceptional artistic and human adventure. I am, today, happy to have accomplished the mission I was trusted with in order to cast this iconic brand back into the spotlight.”
Though Manish Arora has stated that he will still be working on his own collection, our next question is, who will be replacing him at Paco Rabanne?
Until that is announced, au revoir Arora!
