Create collection instance for given array in Laravel

Laravel provides many helpers that come in handy in multiple ways and saves developer’s work. One of such is collect() which can be used easily to create Collection instance for the provided array.

The collection is one of the most powerful features provided by Laravel which also used within Eloquent

Tested with Laravel versions 5.8, 6, and 7.

We need to import the Illuminate\Support\Collection namespace with the use keyword.
