Great Eastern : Manish presents a show with a social message

03/19/2015 | 11:01pm US/Eastern

Designer Manish Malhotra presented a thought-provoking off-site show at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015. A scenic set and a blue runway was created at the The Great Eastern Home for the show, which saw the designer present an exquisite summer collection, while also lending his support to a new program against gender-based violence. Manish took the final bow with model Lakshmi Rana and a bevy of 55 other models, who carried social messages in support of the campaign. An off-site venue bedecked with thousands of flowers, a runway (the longest in the history of Indian fashion) and a glamorous show with a compelling social message - Manish Malhotra's The Blue Runway show for the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015, gave a new dimension to his summer collection with a positive social message. Presented in association with the WEvolve campaign and World Bank as a partner, the off-site show was held in the old-world ambience of The Great Eastern. The WEvolve program draws on the power of creative industries, including mass popular culture, fashion and social media. Presenting the show along with Manish was Hollywood actress and fashion maven Rosario Dawson. She was styled in a midnight blue crop-top with a voluminous rose pink lehenga from his latest line. The collection showcased mirror work and floral embroidery, adding a 3D and textural effect to the elegant pieces. The colour palette was dominated by hues of blue, from powder pink to midnight, accented with bold variations of yellow. Thanks to its global appeal, the innovative collection can be worn on any platform. The women's line included flowy gowns, jacket saris, off-shoulder and halter crop tops and skirts as an ode to the lehenga, while menswear included bandhgala jackets and long shirts with structured and easy styles. The youthful and glamorous line celebrated romance against violence. The packed front row for the beautiful show included Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shabana Azmi, Kajol, Huma Qureshi, Neha Dhupia, Richa Chadda, Sophie Choudry, Freddy Daruwala and Sridevi, among others. Anmol Jewellers collaborated with Manish to curate a special jewellery line for this show. Published on 20/3/2015
