Manish Malhotra Ended Day 2 At LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK


Manish Malhotra ensures that his collections are always a traditional blend of Indian crafts with contemporary touches. His sensational line ended day two at Lakmé Fashion Week for Summer/Resort 2011.

The 40 gorgeous evening wear creations for men and women were resplendent with the wonderful Chikankari work as well as Karshmiri embroidery especially created in Srinagar and Jammu which Manish is keen on reviving. Adding Rajasthani gotta borders to the swirling creations; Manish ensured his ensembles would be fit for a myriad occasions.

Using delicate summer shades of aqua, green, powder blue and ivory, Manish gave a striking look to women’s wear. Men’s wear created in beige, grey and navy had a choice of lush textures that ranged from tussore to brocade for the sharply tailored bundgala jackets teamed with either slim pants or Jodhpuri trousers.

Against a rustic background of ethnic motifs and ornate lamps hanging from the ceiling, the show opened with six bare chest male models draped in Kashmiri shawls or dressed in white chikan kurtas. The men’s wear collection of 20 creations that followed had an assortment of sherwanis, kurtas and sharply cut jackets with touches of Karshmiri craft or Lucknowi embroidery and teamed with churidars, Pathani or cowled salwars, slim trousers and Jodhpuri pants.

 The 20 women’s creations were opulent and grand in nature as voluminous lehengas and kalidar kurtas in net with silver zari work glided down the catwalk. Layered and superbly crafted the floor length kurtas at times teamed with flared lehengas were a dream to behold. 3D rose embroidery, low sexy backs high collars shimmering badla work and zari motifs on net, and chikan work in innovative forms dazzled the audience. The final creation a magnificent tiered multiple fabric layered lehenga with a tiny choli with a silver embellished dupatta was a perfect end to a memorable show.

What an utterly wonderful power packed fashionable end it was to the second day of the Summer/Resort 2011 season at Lakmé Fashion Week by Manish Malhotra the Fashion Emperor of Bollywood.
