Manish Malhotra highlights Indian craftsmanship at LFW

Fashion designer Manish Malhotra's Winter/Festive 2016 collection highlighted Indian craftsmanship combined with modern silhouettes for a stylish and young bridal entourage, on day one of the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW). The Manish Malhotra show also took a digital leap in association with Etihad Airways, which will now premiere as a virtual reality experience.

The fashion designer showed his signature resham threadwork, clustered sequins and intricate hand embroidery on dramatic trails and off-shoulder capes, alongside floral motifs.

Replete with avant-garde twists, there were jacket-saris; lehengas paired with sheer crop blouses and draped dupattas on contemporary anarkalis.

“Elaborately detailed long tunics worn over cigarette pants and majestic, flowing backless gowns effortlessly brought the classic and contemporary together,” LFW observed.

Also seen on the ramp was actor Shraddha Kapoor in a resplendent deep green velvet lehenga paired with an embroidered crop blouse, accompanied by another actor Sushant Singh Rajput in a black bandhgala and white Jodhpur pants. (AR)
