This was one of my most looked forward to shows in the week, it is the bollywood designer daddy Manish Malhotra we're talking about after all. I must confess I tried to go well in time to grab a good spot in the photographers pit because I knew this show is going to be a full house and It sure was. The chick sitting next to me was leaning all over me to get good clicks.
The show was as usual a starry affair with Siddartha Malhotra (Student Of The Year fame), Esha Gupta (umm what movie was she in? ) and Jacquelyn Fernandes (Not trying to recall any movie she was in). But the point is, all three of them looked gorgeous thanks to the beautiful Manish Malhotra outfits. I loved Jacquelyn's outfit the most, stunning phulkari work with the bandh gala and cut-out back.
Manish Malhotra has been bagging a lot of praises for the social welfare he does by bringing on the ramp traditional craftsmanship. After the kashmiri thread work and chikankari in last few collections, it was time to revisit Punjab in all it's glory. The collection was titled 'Threads of Emotions'. Handcrafted phulkari with a modern twist in the form of anarkalis and lehengas. The menswear consisted of bandh galas and pathanis with turbans.
Presenting the Designer himself, he looks so Sauve!
