The weekend gone by, was dedicated to celebrity couturier, Manish Malhotra, who put up one of the most glamourous shows of the season. The event, that was held at the Jumeirah Emirates Tower Hotel in association with Design One, saw the coming together of the crème of Dubai, all dressed in their fashionable best.
Known to always do something out of the ordinary, the designer used the escalator at the venue, as a part of the ramp, where models, some flown in from India, walked in his spectacular bridal collection. Adorned with pearls, tassels and crystal encrusted couture, the collection was the perfect ode to the designer completing over 25 years in the industry.
The show was an amalgamation of his Sensual Affair collection at India Couture Week and Tales of Indulgence from Lakme India Week. Adding to the glamour quotient of his collection, the celebrity designer, had none other than Kriti Sanon, Sidharth Malhotra and close friend Karan Johar walk the ramp, posing as the perfect showstoppers. One can only imagine how the crowd came alive, when B-town stars, Sidharth, Kriti and Karan walked down the runway, in the most coveted pieces from the collection.
After a two year hiatus, the designer showcased his collection as a prelude to the two-day Design One exhibition that kicks off today. If the show was anything to go by, the collection at the exhibition is going to be perfect for the festive season, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t check it out.
