Hiya people.. I am super excited and charged after witnessing the spectacular Manish Malhotra show yesterday at Lakme Fashion Week. What energy, what vibe.. It was super. I was trying my best to keep you all updated by way of twitter but the network was really bad and my tweets refused to leave me :-( Anyway here I am to give you all a complete low down.
Packed to full house Manish's show celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema was high on octane & glamour. Seen gracing the front row were beautiful Karisma Kapoor, Kajol, Parineeti & Shruti Hassan. A nostalgic trip down the memory lane from 1920s to current day Manish had created some extremly beautiful outfits giving them a modern twist very apt for today's world. I loved the Black & White 20s & polka dotted 70s. Very wearable even in today's day n era cos Monochrome is the hottest trend right now. Remember!!
The show opened with a roaring applause with Karan Johar ( Mind you he was looking super adorable & extremely conscious of all the attention )walking the ramp showcasing Black & White 1920s -30s era followed by Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Bannerjee & Anurag Kashyap. This was followed by fitted Kurtas and churidars from 60s, Bell bottoms and polka dots from 70s, flower power and hippie culture of 80s. Manish made an entry in 90s and showed his trademark pastels and chiffons.
The crowd went crazy when 2 handsome hunks took to the ramp. Siddharth Malhotra & Varun Dhawan sent the crowd in a tizzy & the show came to an end with beautiful Priyanka Chopra in a pop green chiffon and net sari with a red border that had Manish written all over it. She also spoke about glory of Indian cinema and invited Bhanu Athaiya, Asha Bhonsle & Hema Malini on the stage. Asha Bhonsle confessed her long pending desire to model and brought the whole house down when she walked the ramp to a thunderous standing ovation by the crowd.
Overall a beautifuly put together show with the most awesome clothes & lovely music from 30s till 2013. Also some seductive songs from Asha Bhonsle in the background lifted the whole mood and made us swoon. Spectacular collection, something Manish is always known for and that's why attracts such a huge fan base. Manish Malhotra Take a Bow!!
FUF brings you the best from the show. Enjoy :-)
The icing on the cake was spotting Christian Louboutin. How awesome is that!!
What do you think. I have forgotten about the Phulkari show at WIFW cos this is the Manish Malhotra I love and adore.
Will be bringing you more action from LFW in coming days. If you wanna know more follow me on twitter. Have a great weekend :-)
