Manish Malhotra opens Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2013
Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 24, 2013
Lakme Fashion Week which is one of the most awaited event in India’s fashion world, kick started with a grand opening show of designer Manish Malhotra in amchi Mumbai. Unlike Manish’s summer collection which had loads of Phulkari work, this festive collection ‘Reflections’ reflected more of Manish’s signature detailwork. The colours had more of muted shades combined with bright hues…..the beautiful pastel colours like mint, moss, grey, baby pink with touches of maroon, rani pink, burgundy and black were the prime colours around which the entire collection revolved. The collection had lehengas, anarkalis & sarees while plenty of achkans & kurtas in menswear.
I am more in awe of Manish’s earlier collection since this one never really stood out from the rest of his earlier works. Beautiful designs indeed but I wish Manish would draw inspiration from other parts of our country and blend more traditional fabrics from south & east India.
Here is a look at Manish Malhotra’s Festive/Winter collection.
