Turner’s popular emoticon, Tuzki, is all set to take the international world of glitz and glamour by storm. Turner India has announced a collaboration with Indian ace designer Manish Arora for the international launch of a special Tuzki-inspired fashion collection.
Amidst the sunset hues and mystical midnight tones plucked from the robes of Merlin, you will spot China’s most famous emoticon, ‘Tuzki’ at the fall 2018 collection at Paris Fashion Week. The quirky rabbit adds a playful element to the eclectic mix.
Launched as ‘Orange is the new Zen’, this year year marks a milestone for the designer, celebrating 10 glorious years of showcasing stunning designs at one of the world’s most prestigious fashion week.
The collection include t-shirts, dresses, jackets, pants, sweat shirts and accessories such as backpacks, pouches and clutch bags.
Inspired by the quirky rabbit, these designs will be widely promoted and available for sale across Manish Arora fashion stores in China, before bringing it to the Indian market.
Commenting on the collaboration, the ace designer said, “It feels great to partner with an iconic brand like Tuzki. This unique collection was inspired by this special rabbit. He personifies a composed, relaxed yet a cool lifestyle, one that is similar to mine. The collection is a story of Tuzki’s day in Paris where he is seen meditating below the Eiffel Tower, chilling in his room with a glass of wine and watching nature from the window, highlighting the fascinating character that he is. Being a Tuzki fan, it’s a pleasure to be a part of his world now, in my own way.”
