Austin, August 23, 2013: The modern wedding and festival fashion of India with traditional touches from the royal lands – Rajasthan and Gujarat – is fast catching up the favor of NRIs in the United States. Manish Malhotra, one of the renowned contemporary Indian designers, presented his pre-bridal festive collection, called “Reflections” in the Lakme Fashion Week 2013, for the target audience including the bigwigs of India and the well-heeled NRIs.
With the Festival/Winter season 2013 round the corner, Manish Malhotra’s latest repertoire is full of ethnic ensembles, reflective of Indian colors, cultures and traditions. Dipped in the vibrant hues of the royal lands and embellished with mirror work, the signature ensembles made a spectacular showcase. In the collection, “Reflections”, the contemporary ghagra-pant – a fusion of traditional lehenga and classic pant – stole the show.
The menswear in the collection was impressive, too. Exclusive festive kurtas and wedding sherwanis paired up with salwars and dhotis exuded rare elegance. Manish Malhotra’s ethnic menswear in the signature collection was perfect in finish, colorful in look and masculine in style. The Manish Malhotra show was concluded with aplomb. Bollywood celebs like Kajol, Karishma, Lara Dutta and Ayushmann Khurrana were the stars of the show.
