The Persian Story - Manish Malhotra - India Couture Week 2016

Thursday 21 July 2016 / , ,

Of all the designers I love, there is one who is capable to put you always on the edge of your seat.
The people sitting ahead of me were kind enough, to share the space so that I could bring you close to what happened at the Opening show by Manish Malhotra at India Couture Week 2016- all the action is right here.
Nothing is cropped. And so is not my story. I have a complete vision of all the garments as seen by my enthusiastic self.
The Persian story- was one of its kind. Lets begin from the set, coz that's where all the magic started.
The fauna, the flora, the pillars, the lights, the lamps transported everyone. Not to forget the typical Persian runway music.
The ramp was depictive of the Persian architecture, its elements, going back to an era of Alexandra the Great.
The fusion of the two eras, was deeply impactful.
Coming to the collection, the models looked liked Royal Princesses of history, that we have only read about in books. The clothes were extravagant, the  Iranian embroidery was never ending on top of it if I tell you that there were 50 limited edition pieces , think of the time and immeasurable efforts taken to bring out and conceptualise it to what it was.
The hand woven golden embroidery on the velvet gowns , cigarette pants, trail gowns, perpetual plaid sherwani's on men in maroon, emerald green and azure blue made me drool every time each piece made its way through my eyes.
The off shoulder gowns, Dupattas with sheer opulence is the only thing a bride should set her eyes and heart on this wedding season.
So all you to brides to be, if ever and ever you want to buy a designer piece to cherish over a lifetime, and pass down to the generations,  you should seriously have a look at the couturier's store, (Delhi and Mumbai ) and tell me which ones you are favourite ?

Bolywood Heart throb Fawad khan opened the show and Deepika Padukone closed the show.
Breathtaking jewellery with uncut polki diamonds and pearls by HazoorilalJewellers by SandeepNarang added the elegance to the already beautiful collection. What a great amalgamation of culture, architecture, and clothes. It was a sheer delight to be a part of the show.
