Genelia & Tusshar Kapoor scorch LFW ramp for Manish Malhotra
Mar '09
When the inspiration is one of the best cars in the world then the collection has to be extraordinary. Skoda Auto's Superb was the theme around which ace Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra created his “7 Star Superb” collection which was a veritable feast for the eyes in fabrics, colours, form and the exquisite embroidery that was lavished on the garments.

Tulle, chiffon, tissue, georgette, brocade, satin, lace in shades of rich bronze, red, beige, pink, brown, peach, and delicate ivory and white gave the saris, sherwanis, lehengas and floor length kurtas an almost ethereal touch.

The embellishments were so dazzling and opulent that they left the audience breathless with their intricate workmanship. 3D motifs, gotta borders, velvet appliqués, silver and gold sequins and beadwork and shimmering crystals were used in the most amazing manner by Manish to turn each and every garment of his into a show stopper.

Where Manish scored was with the many versions of the choli which he designed – some with three-quarter puff sleeves, others were halter while still some were sexily brief. The floor length kurtas in sheer and matte flared panels in pastel hues and multiple fabrics and patterns swirled around the models. Some were daringly sheer with glittering bustiers under them.

Men's sherwanis and kurtas were either teamed with Patiala salwars, churidars or lungis. The former were in rich brocades while the later remained subtle in ivory or pastel hues.

Ending the show were Genilia D'souza the bright star in Bollywood in a luxurious jade green velvet lehenga resplendent with shimmer teamed with a bronze corset and the debonair Tushar Kapoor in a stylish chocolate brocade sherwani.

When it comes to creating dramatic ensembles that make a woman want to own them and a man to wear them; then Manish Malhotra is the master who can dream up a collection with glitz, glamour and style.
