Manish Malhotra brings back the hue of blue at Lakme Fashion Week
The most sought after designer in India is celebrating an impressive 25 years in the fashion industry, and what better way to commemorate his success than to showcase his latest collection at Lakme Fashion Week. Creating a refreshing stream of predominantly sapphire, the cool scene exuded serenity and elegance, with the added dashes of yellow and ivory. The high profile couturier never fails to deliver, and this time was no different, with his stunning Blue Runway featuring a diverse array of billowing gowns, jacket-saris, off-shoulder and crop tops, each ensemble oozing grace and stunning sophistication. The men's assemblage was also grand, resonating a very gentrified and refined vibe, as the hunks tread the indigo sea in bandhgala jackets and long shirts. Inspiringly, the social message of gender equality was promoted amidst the realms of glamour, which was as invigorating as the prominence of azure. Inevitably, the style guru's Bollywood fashionistas graced his show with their presence to show their support, including Kajol, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Sophie Choudry. It seems that Manish Malhotra fever is spreading to Hollywood as American actress Rosario Dawson, who has starred in big name movies such as Men In Black II and Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief, flew into India especially for his catwalk.
