Intervies with Manish Arora
Joey's production team has done a interview with Manish Arora about the Carousel Dress after Joey's concert. The full interview was included in the live products of the concert.
Could you tell us the concept behind the Carousel Dress and your spring/summer collection 2009 in general? What inspired the carousel dress? My SS'09 collection was inspired by the circus. The whole collection was designed on these lines. The carousel was one of the most used elements in this collection. I wanted one statement piece in the line, and obviously the Carousel Dress had to be it.
What do you think the carosuel represents? All the colours and constant changes build up to a whirlwind of fun in the piece. I thnik it represents the simplicity and fun involved in being young at heart.
The audience at the concert was delighted with the costume. As they could see the bottom part of the dress rotate. Was the mechanics of the Carosuel the biggest challenge in making the dress?
