Cosmic love

Forget the jeremiahs who warn of rising populism and division, Indian designer Manish Arora forecasts a stellar future "full of cosmic love".

His joyous, spectacular collection promised "heavenly bodies aligning in glittering galaxies", and on the runway at least, he delivered. Shooting stars and suns burst from belts, with great meteors swirls of paisley Swarovski crystals on silk and velvet tunics.

Dior too found room for astrological embroidery in its far more austere show, while Issay Miyake embraced the Aurora Borealis in its gorgeously ethereal collection that mixed Shetland wool coats and cloaks with high-tech sculptural pieces made using baked and steam stretching techniques.
