(fashion show) Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 hosted a special preview of MANISH MALHOTRA in association with LYF for his upcoming Haute Couture collection –ELEMENTS at Li Bai, St.Regis Hotel today. Speaking about the collection, Manish Malhotra said, “As my label turns a new decade, I am excited to unveil my Summer Resort 2016 Collection at Lakmé Fashion Week. Over the years each of my shows at Lakmé Fashion Week have grown to be landmark events in their own right.
I am excited to be doing the LYF show this season. My collection ‘ELEMENTS’ is inspired by nature and brings out the dichotomy of beauty and power present in the four elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire, much like the play of confidence and demureness; tradition and glamour that we see in a contemporary bride.” The offsite show will take place at Mehboob Studio on March 29, marking the opening day of Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016.
The collection will include richly embellished gowns, lehengas with trails and structured tops and blouses. Layers of fabulous organza, tussar and crepe in pastel hues of baby pink, powder blue, light green and orange give the outfits a dreamy allure. Motifs of tropical flora; sharp, architectural cuts and asymmetrical detailing add a touch of edge to the collection. As with every season, the showcase will also present a capsule for grooms in the collection. For Summer/Resort 2016, I have crafted sharp jackets and kurtas, tailored pants and churidars in blue and ivory for the gentlemen for a refined look. Saket Dhankar, Vice President and Head-Fashion, IMG Reliance said, “Manish has had a long standing relationship with Lakmé Fashion week, spanning over a decade.
His vision and creative craftsmanship is par excellence and the panache he brings onto the ramp is unmatched. Block your date for 29th March, the opening show of Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 will be an evening of high fashion and glamour, we promise you a grand affair.” Sunil Dutt, President LYF SmartDevices said “Lakmé Fashion Week and Manish Malhotra complement LYF’s pursuit of creative excellence, design superiority, and affordable luxury.
