Manish Malhotra Opens Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 with “A Summer Affair”
Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2014’s opening show has been the most awaited fashion moment ever since the schedule for the week was released. And then the moment arrived. The show was about to begin and the venue was bustling with fashionistas waiting for Manish Malhotra to exhibit his collection “A Summer Affair”.
Sonakshi Sinha opened the show as well as closed it in a floor length black sheer + solid kurta with white embroidery on it.
Summer asks for light and comfortable fabric and keeping this in mind his collection was crafted from organza, georgette, tulle and Chantilly lace. The colors seemed perfect too, for a refreshing time under the sunny months. The color palette included black, white, and grey, navy as well as blush pink.
Long as well as cropped jackets, floor kissing kurtis, shirt-inspired kurtis dominated the collection. Same color embroidery, print on print, zip detailing as well as layered panels were elements of the collection that stood out. Skirt lehengas with deep pockets, pre-stitched saris, crop tops modernized the traditional, Indian silhouettes.
A burst of floral ensembles took over the ramp, and it looked like a beautiful eastern garden. Inspired by love and romance, the outfits were voluminous and feminine.
The outfits by themselves did exude elegance and class. A newbie would have been all-praises but a fashion week veteran would know that the collection failed to try something out-of-the-box. We hope someday Manish Malhotra will move out of his comfort zone and not just stick to what he does best.
The beautiful and the famous who attended the show included Kajol, Tanisha, Kangana, Sonali Bendre, Sophie Chowdhary, Zayed Khan, Urmila, Ameesha Patel and others.
And it’s just the beginning- Day 1 on the horizon. The show must go on!
