New Delhi: Indian fashion designer Manish Arora can't wait to see his 'burning man' family again.
Burning Man is an annual event held in the western United States at Black Rock City, a temporary city in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada. The event's name originated from its culmination, the symbolic ritual burning of a large wooden sculpture (the Man) that traditionally occurs on the Saturday evening of the event.
The excited Arora posted a countdown on his Instagram along with three throwback pictures from the last year's event.
"22 days to meet the man of my life BURNING MAN here are 3 photographs shot by 3 of my fav Photographers at the playa last year @eleanorpreger @scott.london @siderth can't wait to see my burning man family again," read the caption.
In the pictures, the ace designer can be seen donning a colorful abstract ensemble while complementing it with neck pieces and a bright pink jacket.
Burning Man is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by ten main principles: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy.
The event will be held from August 26 to September 4 this year.
