Manish Arora graduated from the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi in 1994. He won the Most Creative Student award for his final collection. In 1995, Manish participated in the much respected Young Asian Designers Competition held in Jakarta. He won the Most Original Collection as well as the 2nd Runners up award in this competition. This recognition held to a job offer from the editor of the French Vogue to join them as a stylist. However, true to heart, Manish declined and stayed on in India to launch the label Manish Arora in 1997.
