Manish Arora: Since his first show in August 2000, this maverick designer has become very interesting. Loud, rampantly colourful and psychotic in presentation, he raced to the top as the world looked on. His celebration of the mela called India has pole-vaulted him into international reckoning. Next month, he will be one of the first Indian designers to show at fashion's most uber ramp—Paris Fashion Week, Spring-Summer 2008.
